ARA has taken its deep experience with CBRNE modeling and Emergency Management operations to provide simple yet powerful tools to assist first-responders with CBRNE response. Tools provided on iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Android smart phones take advantage of capabilities in the devices, including:

  • Interactive Google Maps to display evacuation areas and user input annotations
  • Google Search access within the applications to provide a one-button display of nearby schools, hospitals, government facilities, etc.
  • GPS to view current location relative to incident areas

HAZMAT Evac provides map-based evacuation standoff for hazardous material spills in accordance with the 2008 Emergency Response Guidebook. The application includes standoff for more than 3,000 chemicals, includes ERG Guide data for chemicals and automated access to weather data. Application is available on iTunes and Android Market.

First Responder Support Tools (FiRST) is sponsored in part by the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology office and expands on the basic capabilities of HAZMAT Evac to include bomb response standoff and range-to-effect information.
