Title: “Implementation of end-to-end incident management processes in a unified IMS”
Supervisor: Hannes Högni Vilhjálmsson

Abstract: During large scale search and rescue operations, such as those carried out by the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue (ICE-SAR), information technology plays a key role. Systems used by incident managers must support their processes and actions, and enable fast and efficient information gathering and distribution. 

This project introduces two novel extensions to the incident management system used by ICE-SAR and the Civil Protection in Iceland.

The first is a new system called Preparedness, which aids in the collaborative creation and management of preparedness plans. Through integration with an incident management system, Preparedness furthermore allows for the initiation of a preparedness plan within the same system as is used to carry it out, increasing speed and accuracy in the plan's execution.

The second is a search area and evacuation management component, an addition to ICE-SAR's and the Civil Protection's incident management system. Creating and managing search areas and evacuation zones is now, for the first time, possible from within the system. This allows for a connection between areas, and the tasks, groups and individuals within the incident management system. This enables a plethora of new features around search area and evacuation management to be implemented.

These two extensions bring an already successful incident management system to a new level, and make it a complete solution for incident management.
