Identification, tracking and monitoring are the core pillars of accountability, and are essential to the infrastructure for emergency response management. Emergency response management must always be prepared to manage any incident or event – planned or unplanned – and oversee accountability to mitigate possible situations and ensure the safety of others. However, standard accountability tools in the field do not enable response teams to meet expectations set by the government. Today, teams are set up to manage data, resources and individuals manually – pen and paper, radio, etc. – all of which obstruct and restrict situational awareness and reporting, and put on-scene individuals at risk.
