Critical Healthcare Facilities Evacuation
Critical Healthcare Facilities in the Maryland -National Capital Region will ensure the orderly and timely movement to a safe location of patients and/or residents from facilities that need to be evacuated in the event of an emergency.
Emergency Medical Services Data Devices
This project increases the Maryland-National Capital Region’s capability to link first responders to real-time data, situational awareness, and communications resources by providing Montgomery Fire Rescue Services (MCFRS) with ruggedized tablets suitable for use in the field.
Family Reunification Assistance
The Maryland-National Capital Region will have the resources, communications, and coordination to manage and enhance the effectiveness and interoperability of family assistance services in emergencies.
First Responder Cache
The Maryland Emergency Response System (MDERS) Medical Cache enables the region’s first responders (including hospitals and health care professionals) to rapidly provide medical treatment and/or prophylaxis to victims, providers, and their families in response to a major disaster or infectious disease outbreak of any type.
First Watch Situational Awareness
Hospitals, Emergency Medical Services Managers, and Public Health will have real time awareness of operations to improve response performance during routine and large-scale emergencies.
High Threat Mobile Evacuation Platform
The Mobile Evacuation Platform supports the High Threat Medicine Capability by equipping tactical medics in the MDERS with inconspicuous, robust medical support systems for use in high threat incidents.
Law Enforcement Specialize Response
Law enforcement special operations teams in the MDERS are trained and equipped to respond to high threat incidents.
The Maryland-National Capital Region will have the resources, communications, and coordination to manage a regional medical surge event.
Public Information Warning
Public Information and Warnings are timely, accurate and coordinated across the National Capital Region
Resource Management Software
Equip MDERS stakeholders with a comprehensive, adaptable, and scalable resource management system, allowing them to identify, track, request, and repatriate items based on emergency needs. Development of this capability began in FY13 with the procurement of the MCM Technology’s CommSHOP 360 Asset Management Software, which was continued and expanded in FY14.
Tactical Emergency Casualty Care(TECC)
All law enforcement officers within the Maryland-National Capital Region will be able to provide rapid medical interventions for individuals wounded by bullets and/or blunt trauma.
Training and Exercise Program
All Capabilities are supported with a robust training and exercise program that is integrated with planning and evaluation. A variety of methods is used to deliver and evaluate training including distance, blended, kinesthetic, and discussion based.
Utility Terrain Vehicles
The Utility Terrain Vehicle capability offers first responder delivery and patient transport access to remote or crowded areas that are inaccessible, inconvenient, or dangerous to traditional transport units, including “off road” and crowd conditions.
Video teleconferencing (VTC) uses audio and video telecommunications to bring people at different sites together. VTC can be used to share documents and display information on-screen.
The Maryland Capital Region will work to promote and ensure the ongoing engagement of volunteers in all its capability development efforts through the design and dissemination of successful volunteer recruitment, retention, utilization, and recognition strategies.
