CAMEOfm

CAMEOfm (Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations) is a database application (with eight modules) designed to help first responders and emergency planners access and manage crucial chemical property and emergency response information for hazardous chemical releases.

CAMEOfm home screen.
The home screen in CAMEOfm provides access to the data management modules (such as Facilities and Contacts), as well as the other programs in the CAMEO software suite (CAMEO Chemicals, ALOHA, and MARPLOT).

The CAMEOfm database can be used with the other programs in the CAMEO software suite (ALOHA, CAMEO Chemicals, and MARPLOT) to:

  • Access chemical property and emergency response information.
  • Model potential chemical releases.
  • Display results on a map.
  • Manage planning data.

During a response to a chemical release, CAMEOfm can help decision makers—from firefighters to chemical plant safety officers—quickly get the information they need for a safe, effective response.

The modules and programs work interactively to display critical information in an easy-to-understand manner, but ALOHA, MARPLOT, and CAMEO Chemicals can also be used independently of the CAMEOfm interface.

Accessing CAMEOfm

CAMEOfm is developed jointly by NOAA and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and it runs on both Mac and Windows computers.
