City of Toronto selects DisasterLAN as crisis incident management system

After a competitive bidding process, the City of Toronto has selected Buffalo Computer Graphics´ (BCG) DisasterLAN (DLAN) as their Crisis Incident Management System (CIMS).

Toronto began soliciting proposals for a CIMS in November 2014, pursuing a web-based, out-of-the-box solution that could easily integrate within the City´s existing business and technical environments with minimal modifications.

The City required the ability to streamline the flow of information throughout the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC), and to electronically link the EOC with Divisional Operations Centres (DOCs), Emergency Site Commanders, other key officials and off-site staff. The chosen system would increase efficiency by saving valuable time and resources during an emergency and reducing duplicate efforts.

The City awarded the contract to BCG´s DLAN, a web-based incident management system designed for use in EOCs to manage both planned events and disasters. DLAN provides information, workflow, and communication tools and is accessible from all mobile devices.

BCG is a global provider of Incident Management Software, Mass Notification Systems, Maritime Training Solutions, and Custom Hardware & Software Engineering.

FutureShield Inc. was founded in Toronto, Canada in 2005 on the premise that there is a strong need for domain expertise in integrating software solutions for security, emergency management, and critical infrastructure protection.
