WebFirst has developed a resource tracking workflow System under a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Project called e-Tasker. This project is composed of four primary workflows with reporting and search capabilities. This application allows FEMA staff to track various logistics and shipments of commodities (water, ice, etc.) that are ordered for a disaster zone. WebFirst also provides reporting and advanced informatics capabilities in this product. WebFirst has developed this project using best practices and an object-oriented approach in order to deliver a high-quality product.
In a recent survey of users, the eTasker system was rated highest as compared with other software systems within the program! Our system rated #1 in the following categories:
The governor of the state in which the disaster occurred must declare a state of emergency and formally request from the President that FEMA and the federal government respond to the disaster. The only exception is when an emergency or disaster occurs on federal property or to a federal asset, for example, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in the 1995 bombing, or the Space Shuttle Columbia in the 2003 return-flight disaster.
