LLIS Good Story: Kansas City's Metropolitan Emergency Information System (MEIS)   [open pdf - 246KB]

"The Mid-America Regional Council, or MARC (http://www.marc.org/), which serves as the association of city and county governments and the metropolitan planning organization for the bi-state Kansas City metropolitan region, has developed a secure Web-based system to allow emergency responders to share information and coordinate planning and responses for large-scale events. MARC designed Kansas City's Metropolitan Emergency Information System (MEIS) to meet the diverse needs of a large region with multiple jurisdictions. MEIS connects approximately 100 government agencies and private institutions across eight counties and two states in the Kansas City region. The secure system allows agencies throughout the region to share data on emergency personnel, plans, and assets, as well as purchasing guidelines and fund management information."
