Using MLS and LDS Maps to create emergency zones

Postby holtsberryf » Sun Jul 09, 2017 4:52 pm

I am a Stake Emergency Prep Specialist for The Blue Diamond Stake in Las Vegas, NV.

We have been tasked to create a Stake and Ward emergency response plan. This task comes the Handbook.

One of the tasks is to gather information about members who have special needs.
One of the tasks is to gather information about members who have special training.
One of the tasks is to identify members who have special equipment to be used in time of emergency.
One of the tasks is to divide the ward into zones small enough that zone captains can quickly check on families after an incident to establish their safety and needs.

Does the MLS have the capability to select specific groups, identify their needs and print them out?
Our clerks have found no such capability.
We also need to be able to manipulate the Map, to identify boundries, and distinguish zones.

We are really struggling with the tasks we have been given.

Since this task has been in effect for so long, I am surprised that the MLS does not offer the tools to accomplish it.

Your help is sorely needed.
