The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) is seeking a comprehensive and visual solution to improve our understanding of emergency incidents for our staff.
Currently, the State of California uses SCOUT, a situational awareness and collaboration tool to provide an information sharing environment for small to extreme scale homeland security and emergency management incidents. SCOUT facilitates operational and tactical collaboration, training, and technical management for and among partner agencies. It further promotes interagency situational awareness for local, tribal, state, and federal partners.
SCOUT originated as a research and development project out of the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate and was developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory. The original program was called the Next Generation Incident Command System.

California Government Code section 7405 directs that: “state government entities, in developing, procuring, maintaining, or using electronic or IT, either indirectly or through the use of state funds by other entities, shall comply with the accessibility requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C.

Government Code section 7405, in requiring compliance with Section 508, mandates that electronic and information technology (EIT) are accessible to individuals with disabilities, specifically:
State Agencies/state entities must develop, procure, maintain, or use EIT, that employees with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access and use by employees who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the Agency/state entity.
Individuals with disabilities, who are members of the public seeking information or services from an Agency/state entity, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the Agency/state entity.
