Sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security FEMA and the Department of Health and Human Services, the Winter Blast demonstration was a national mass casualty demonstration testing the incident command capabilities of federal, state, local, private sector and volunteer emergency response officials.
Using handheld devices running the CoreStreet PIVMAN Client software, security personnel were able to check the status of every entering individual, as well as establish their Emergency Support Function (ESF), such as doctor or emergency management.
