At a glance, get a clear picture
Partnering with Systems Definition, Inc., an innovative developer of fireground accountability applications, we developed a streamlined user interface that integrates multiple tasks. Now, incident commanders can more easily identify who has responded to the incident, conduct roll-calls and even issue an evacuation notification from the convenience of one user-friendly screen.
Quicker and easier PAR checks
Simply open the Tactical Alert window from the laptop used by incident command to initiate a Personnel Accountability Report, or PAR check. Each responder acknowledges the incident commander's request for a PAR check by simply pressing the PTT button on their APX radios. Incident command receives confirmation of who has acknowledged the PAR check and a count of those yet to respond. As a result, they not only have better accountability of personnel, but the solution significantly reduces the amount of time it takes to conduct the PAR check and cuts down on radio traffic.
Make sure your alerts are heard
The customizable Tactical Alert messaging feature allows an incident commander to instantly send an alert to every responder on the fireground channel simultaneously. These alerts initiate visual and audible notifications on the responder radio. Sixteen different alerts are available for customization and these alerts can be sent to the entire group of responders, a select group of responders, or just to a single responder.
Know who's in trouble
The optional automatic Man Down alert on the APX radios adds another valuable level of safety. The on-board accelerometer in the radio monitors an individual's movement and orientation. If a responder is motionless and in a horizontal position for a predetermined amount of time, the radio will automatically transmit an emergency alert, notifying incident command that the responder is potentially in distress.
As soon as a responder turns their radio to a designated channel or talkgroup, they're accounted for.
Know exactly who is carrying the radio by integrating with a rostering app or through the EasyStaff® website.
See exactly who’s talking on the Accountability client screen every time they transmit.
