What it Does: StatusNet911 provides a cloud-based, multi casualty incident management platform for EMS agencies, first responders, PSAPs, public health departments and hospitals. This advanced multi casualty incident management tool provides at-a-glance always-on alerts on changes to hospital status and hospital diversion information to EMS personnel. StatusNet911 provides a 24/7 open line of communication between all emergency system participants. Communicate easily and seamlessly with hospitals, public health departments, first responders, police, fire, EMS, HazMat, or any other organization.
Vision: “Imagine being able to monitor live multi casualty incidents and communicate (24/7) with all multi-agency responders from anywhere on the web.”
How it is Used: StatusNet911 links individual emergency response agencies and coordinators in a single, easy-to-use county-wide application. Emergency communications personnel can monitor hospital diversion data and mass casualty incidents. Hospitals and incident commanders manage MCIs and distribute field patients via the StatusNet911 interface. Custom alerts can be sent via pager, e-mail, or through the StatusNet911 application. Law enforcement BOLO and Amber Alert notifications also take advantage of the StatusNet911 pre-hospital and hospital alerting system. PSAP Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) data is integrated into StatusNet911 to provide real-time tracking of emergency incidents and unit locations.
Many counties now use StatusNet911 for effective multi casualty incident management, and with this advanced software, are able to track every patient from the moment of a 911 call to their arrival at the medical facility providing the emergency care.

“Hundreds of students were evacuated from Columbine High School and took refuge in a local library, a grammar school, and a fire station, seeking protection from gun fire. Hundreds of thousands fled as Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans and many have never returned. Tens of thousands were evacuated from the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado and more than three million people on the East Coast of the United States were displaced by Hurricane Sandy. Many hours or even days can go by while family members, both locally and in other States, frantically try to reconnect with their loved ones when separated and displaced during a disaster.”
Now, with the availability of StatusNet911 Community Contact, county governments will be able to rapidly identify residents who are evacuated or otherwise displaced during a disaster. Additionally, the StatusNet911 Community Contact online database will be accessible by designated county officials, resulting in enhanced multi casualty incident management. With the database, officials will be able to help family members reconnect with their loved ones, thus freeing up vital emergency communications lines and emergency response personnel so they may continue dealing with the emergency at hand.
