IMPRESS aims to advance the preparedness of emergency medical services (ambulance dispatch centers, hospitals, volunteer communities etc) in numerous ways, including through planning for all-hazards, increasing surge capacity, tracking the availability of beds and other resources using electronic systems, and developing systems that are interoperable with other response teams. The IMPRESS general objective is to provide preparedness and response capabilities through guidelines and tools where ultimately, the routine use of these capabilities will sharpen their application in larger disaster scenarios.
