Cut your exercise planning time

Real-time emergency management requires emergency preparedness planning

“I can easily say that I cut my exercise planning time in half. I was able to focus more on whom to involve and how to get even more detailed with the exercise injects.”

–  Fred Conley, MD, Preston County’s Health Officer

Hospitals connect across the district for metro-area emergency preparedness drill

When Indiana Health District 1 emergency management agencies participated in a metro-area drill, the partner agencies’ emergency management system (EMS) did not deliver the required capabilities. It was replaced quickly by LiveProcess Emergency Manager.

“The fact that we could very readily bridge our district to the
state and area beyond without missing a beat says everything
about LiveProcess.”

– Emery Garwick, EMS/Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Methodist Hospitals and Chairman, Indiana District 1
