January 29 '08: In San Francisco last October, the city announced a new secure web-based information-sharing portal for first responders and community stakeholders, a press release announced. Working with Collaborative Fusion, a consulting, technology, first response and homeland security firm, the city has developed the www.HelpBayArea.org.
The HelpBayArea.org site "offers the 10 Bay Area counties' disaster and volunteer organizations a highly effective means for notifying and managing emergency responders -- from the initial registration and credential verification, through mobilization, on-site check-in, tracking and demobilization," the press release read.Much like the Essential Public Network, the HelpBayArea.org site will allow San Francisco City officials the ability "to assign city employees and volunteers to provide disaster response assistance where they are needed most," Laura Phillips, Executive Director of the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management and Chair of the Bay Area's SUASI's Approval Authority. Collaborative Fusion developed the website's platform as well as website itself. Currently, the platform underpinning the HelpBayArea.org site is able to sync with other systems and can be adaptable to other needs. The platform is being used in nine states currently.
