EM-COP stands for Emergency Management Common Operating Picture.
It is a web-based information gathering, planning and collaboration tool that runs on any device with a modern browser such as desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
It is designed to provide users with a simple way to gather, organise, create and share emergency management information between emergency managers at no cost to agencies.
This means that no matter where you are – any control centre, shire council, not-for-profit relief organisation, essential service provider or on the ground – you will be able to understand and add to current situation awareness more quickly and effectively than ever before.
In addition, EM-COP will be used before an emergency (to help plan and prepare) and after an emergency (to assist with recovery).
