Welcome to ReadyOp. ReadyOp is next generation software used by government agencies at all levels and internationally for planning, communication, coordination and control. ReadyOp provides an efficient and effective platform for everyday operations as well as planning and response for incidents and emergencies. ReadyOp is a secure, web-based platform designed for simplicity, flexibility and effectiveness. No other program offers such a powerful, yet easy to learn and use tool for command, control and coordination and collaboration.
We work very hard to make ReadyOp very simple - to learn and to use!
ReadyOp was designed as a complete platform for planning, response, command and control, communications and event management. Agencies at all levels of government are using ReadyOp for planning, exercises, planned events and emergencies. ReadyOp follows the guidance of the NIMS framework for response and supports single and unified command structures. ReadyOp is also a framework for regional response programs, mutual aid agreements and continuity of operations planning.
When we began developing ReadyOp we had already been working with government agencies and airports, but we had not focused on Incident Command and interoperability. In order to develop and deliver the right tool, we spent many hours listening to and watching first responders in action, plus discussing Incident Command Structure (ICS) with planners and commanders. ReadyOp is a powerful tool, made that way because we listened and continue to listen and learn from our clients. Here are some of the key points and features:
In a crisis situation, the leaders of a community – the mayor, police chief, fire chief and other leaders - need to be able to reach people within their agency and with the leaders of other organizations to communicate and coordinate disaster preparation activities, then recovery actions as necessary. Today communication is almost exclusively by voice using either radios or cellphones. Time, money and lives are lost every year when personnel from different organizations are unable to communicate across agency boundaries.
