The Exchange Network and E-Enterprise community convene EN/EE Open Calls to increase information sharing among Partners. These calls are an opportunity for the community to gather and discuss topics of interest.
The next Open Call, to be held November 30, 2016, at 2:30pm ET, is entitled Tools for First Responders: Washington State’s EPCRA App and the Homeland Emergency Response Exchange Data Flow.
During the first half of the Open Call, Ken Zarker and David Sage, Washington Department of Ecology, will address Washington State’s Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) App. Available for both Android and iOS, this first-of-a-kind mobile app allows authorized fire departments or other emergency responders to access EPCRA data directly from Washington Department of Ecology’s database. The app has been downloaded more than 500 times by first responders.
Next, Pat McDermott, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, will discuss the Homeland Emergency Response Exchange (HERE) data exchange. HERE allows Partners involved in emergency response planning and implementation to share available environmental, health, and natural resource information. Using the HERE flow, emergency planners can quickly identify potential dangers posed by chemical inventories or hazardous waste storage, allowing response teams to assess threats to drinking water infrastructure or other environmental interests.
