Free* for Plan Participant members: ERAC Resource Locator and Incident Management Dashboard

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

ERAC has launched its Resource Locator and Incident Management Dashboard. ERAC Resource Locator is a web mapping application available on ArcGIS Online, built with Esri’s Web AppBuilder software. The ERAC Resource Locator allows you to view a wide range of emergency management resources available across Canada, providing you with phone numbers, addresses and other valuable information. The list of emergency resources is growing and ERAC will continue to update it to provide the best support available.

From an incident location set by the user, the application will locate, within a desired search radius, all resources that could assist with the response. As well as providing contact information for equipment and personnel, the ERAC Resource Locator lists each resource by proximity to the chosen location and provides distances, drive-times and directions.

You can easily integrate your own GIS datasets and leverage the ERAC Resource Locator to locate nearby resources. ERAC can also share the Incident Management Dashboard specific to each of its Plan Participants – another ArcGIS tool for viewing all communication and information in real-time that ERAC collects and maintains during incidents.

*How Do I Access the ERAC Resource Locator?

If your organization already uses ArcGIS Online, this application is available for your use at no additional charge! Have your ArcGIS system administrator contact ERAC’s Geospatial Specialist Mike Wright at or 587-349-5884.

If your organization doesn’t have an ArcGIS Online subscription, ERAC is able to provide and manage accounts on behalf of its Plan Participants seeking access to the ERAC Resource Locator for a minimal administrative charge. This provides a more cost-effective way for your organization to access ERAC’s applications and content without having to pay for a full subscription to ArcGIS Online. Contact ERAC’s Geospatial Specialist Mike Wright at or 587-349-5884 for more information.

If you would rather self-subscribe to ArcGIS Online, contact Esri Canada for more information.
