Ess2go Mobile App

ESS2go, the acronym for Emergency Social Services to Go, was developed by JIBC’s Emergency Management Division and was created as both an educational and a practical tool for Emergency Social Service (ESS) Management teams.

Its unique features include:

  • Function checklists that reveal what percentage of tasks have been completed
  • The ability to quickly calculate the number of Registration and Referral staff required based on the number of people waiting for service at an ESS Reception Centre
  • An interactive map for planning locations of reception centres or group-lodging facilities
  • Organization charts
  • Worker care and safety checklists
  • A 24-hour clock
  • Tips for working with the media
  • Completely self-contained; only the map is dependent upon Internet access
