Personnel accountability on the emergency scene has long posed challenges for the fireground Incident Commander (IC). The fire service has employed a number of low tech solutions in an effort to enhance accountability; T Cards, Personnel Accountability Tags (PAT), Passport Systems, and Accountability Officers to name just a few. None of these solutions have provided the real time accuracy required to achieve any meaningful measure of accountability.
As first responders around the world cope with the impacts of COVID 19, Tablet Command continues to support our customers by providing access to expanded Tablet Command services at no additional cost for the duration of this emergency. Tablet Command is resilient by design, and the Tablet Command team and infrastructure are agile and well positioned for events of this kind. We are committed to doing everything we can to support the public safety community and response personnel.
The Denver Fire Department has been utilizing Tablet Command as an incident management and accountability solution since 2016. Early this year, the Denver Fire Department and the Denver Civil Service Commission asked us to create simulated incidents in Tablet Command for an upcoming Assistant Fire Chief promotional examination.
