The Emergency Management Information System – EMIS – is an integrated system meant to ensure the information support to the decision makers by collecting and distributing information about emergencies from and between those institutions involved in the management of these situations, evaluating the emergency situations and their effects, coordinating interventions, monitoring situations. EMIS also ensures the preparation, implementation, coordination of the plans and standard operational procedures dedicated to each particular situation.
EMIS implementation respects the specific requirements of World Bank financed projects. The final operational acceptance is planned for the beginning of June 2009.
The projectFinanced by the World Bank the project has a value of approximately 7,5 million € and will be implemented in twelve months time by a consortium led by S&T România and APD Communications Ltd. (UK) with support from expert UK partners, EUS Associates Ltd and Ultra Electronics APL. The Project Management Unit of MIRA (Ministry of Interior and Administration Reform) has the responsibility of co-ordinating activity on behalf of all of the government stakeholders in the project.
The project has several stages, one of them being the implementation of the system in pilot locations until the end of 2008, as follows: in two Operational Centers for Emergency Situations at the national level, situated in Bucharest and in Ciolpani and in a series of County Operational Centers for Emergency Situations among which Arad, Bihor, Botoşani, Prahova counties as well as in Bucharest.
As an important component, the design, implementation, training and support of the EMIS application is jointly ensured by the software development division of S&T and the UK partners and is based on the latest software technologies. Robust interfaces developed with all relevant organizations will guarantee the necessary information in case of an emergency situation.
