The City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department will partner with Veoci, a global emergency management SaaS provider, to help in its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. They will rapidly build and implement a solution to easily field resource requests with essential elements of information (EEI) internally and across departments, agencies, and other partners working with the City.
Aram Sahakian, General Manager of the City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department, stated, “We are excited to have these solutions implemented.” Sahakian continued, “As one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States, a seamless response to this crisis is critical. Veoci will make our response to the COVID-19 pandemic smoother and will help the City keep its communities safe and healthy.”
The City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department will also be implementing a number of integrated solutions on the Veoci platform to address additional needs. These include an Incident Action Plan (IAP) builder; Incident Command System (ICS) forms; FEMA reimbursement forms; Pandemic Response Management; and Situational Reporting Dashboards.
As a large metropolitan area, the City and its surrounding communities may be particularly susceptible to widespread infection, amplifying the need for the Emergency Management Department to optimize its response to the current pandemic, especially in how it manages and deploys vital assets and resources.
“Working with the City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department is a great opportunity,” Dr. Sukh Grewal, CEO of Veoci, said. “At this scale, Veoci’s flexibility and capability to address a scenario like the present one will make itself clear. Additionally, this partnership allows Veoci, as a company, to continue our mission of helping people.”
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, deployment of Veoci solutions has skyrocketed among Veoci’s 300 customers in the United States and abroad. Since February, Veoci has developed and implemented over 400 new solutions related to COVID-19 response and management.
