Comprehensive Resource Management and Credentialing System (CRMCS) Workshop
The CRMCS is a resource management tool developed by the Kansas Division of Emergency management to enhance the resource management efforts of city, county, and state organizations. This tool further allows emergency response agencies, to include county EM’s, state, and private agencies, the ability to credential personnel, provide information on the availability of assets prior to and during an emergency, with the ability to track those assets on scene with near real-time visibility via the internet. Thus helping to facilitate mutual aid and improve situational awareness.
This workshop is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the entire system (SalamanderLive, K-SERV, Kansas-MAP) and how each of these standalone systems contributes to resource management. The workshop will span from basic concepts to advanced topics allowing both those familiar and unfamiliar with the system to benefit. Operation of the accountability software and hardware (Command, Mobile Express, RapidTag, 01 Tag, and 02 Track) to conduct digital accountability.
There will be training on how to use the database (SalamanderLive) covering all necessary aspects from getting access, entering resource (personnel/equipment), to granting permissions to additional users. The workshop will cover how to use reporting application (SalamanderLive) and how to find the closest needed resource during an emergency using Kansas-MAP. Basic concepts of how accountability equipment will be utilized prior to and during an emergency will also be discussed.
The intended audience is all county response agencies (to include county EM’s) that have or desire access to the system. Any individual that will be inputting or managing resources within SalamanderLive, printing credentialing badges, and/or using the accountability equipment during an incident. It is strongly encouraged for county EM’s to include their agencies within the county to help manage the information in the system and alleviate the burden of performing the task solely.
