Events & Situation Report

Timeliness holds more value than accuracy. During the beginning of a no-notice event, full details may not be known. Users at the local level may send an Event Notification to their Event Regional Administrators to notify them of an incident that is affecting the user’s organization. Event Notifications can be updated as more information is received.

In order to maintain a streamlined, efficient reporting, the process is tiered between Event Statewide Administrators, Event Regional Administrators, and Local Users of the system. Each of these tiers have different roles and expectations for reporting. The VHASS system is constructed to allow specific administrative rights per group.
