As police officers evacuate the neighborhoods, they can notify the EOC of their progress, establishing a real-time inventory of evacuated areas.
Log incoming information from field personnel...
? Display streets already evacuated in the endangered plume area...
In the same way, real-time locations like the command-post location, staging areas, or locations of available busses can be placed on the map “on the fly” and removed or relocated as necessary.
** At 3:45 p.m., the responders estimate that they can seal the leak in 20 more minutes. The incident commander requests that the EMIS replot the plume to predict its location in 20 minutes. Using this new plume plot, the EMIS identifies any additional endangered populations and plots population data as needed for further evacuation planning. When the mayor calls for a briefing, he is issued a quick situation report.
When the plume has dissipated to harmless concentration levels, the EMIS can be used to assist police officers in returning citizens to their homes in the same way it was used to support decisions about the evacuation.
