Richmond, VA (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Timmons Group was selected by Horry County, SC to provide emergency management application upgrades as well as new applications for emergency operations.

Horry County is located in the northeastern corner of South Carolina with over 250,000 citizens. The County dispatches both emergency and non-emergency response services to police, fire and ambulance calls for all county public safety agencies, as well as Atlantic Beach Police, Aynor Police, Briarcliffe Acres Police, Conway Fire Rescue, Surfside Fire Rescue and the volunteer rescue squads.

Timmons Group provided upgrades to the County’s Integrated Regional Information Sharing System (iRISS), including new role based authentication, Flex API widget development, and Esri programming integration support. Specific tasks included integrating the County’s Motorola 911 Dispatch system feeds for fire and rescue, adding archival views, earthquake tracking, integration of USGS MODIS events, real-time plume modeling, and WebEOC integration.

Timmons Group is also currently building a new emergency management dashboard for the County’s emergency operations division. The dashboard is built using HTML5, making the dashboard a field tool as well as a desktop viewer for the emergency operations center. New incidents and alerts are pushed to the application, and geoprocessing tools are used to gather and display the pertinent information a responder would need, depending on the incident. The geoprocessing tools produce a buffer surrounding the incident, and automatically display all relevant geographic data, such as displaying the closest on-duty officers, hospital, hydrants, shelters, traffic cameras, etc.

Horry County recently received the Esri SAG award for these projects and will be presenting at the Esri UC during the opening plenary session. The County is also providing a focused user presentation on these projects Wednesday at 1:30pm.
