Abstract:

The Readiness Management System RMS was developed for the Corps of Engineers Emergency Management offices. The system provides near real-time information for operation of Corps reservoirs during flood emergencies. The RMS presented utilizes GIS technology for developing input data for hydrologic, hydraulic, and flood damage analysis programs. HEC has adapted flood damage programs for use in the RMS to provide near real-time estimates of flood damage for specific events. Existing programs HEC-DAMCAL and HEC-PBA were adapted for use in the RMS.
