Are you an Incident Commander in the Fire Service still managing calls with a pen and paper or a white board? Tablet Command is a mobile incident management program that works on an iPad.


Here are 5 Important Ways Tablet Command can help you and your Department.

1.Get Out Of The Station Faster.

You can save 20-30 seconds per call because Tablet Command often alerts your iPad or Smartphone before CAD-generated station alerting.

2. Get On Scene Faster.

GPS based mapping assures faster navigation for all responding units.  Plus, you see on-screen critical data such as hydrant location, parcel numbers, overhead satellite imagery, and even fire pre-plans depending on agency capabilities.    .

3. Improve Communication.

Ever have your radio transmissions stepped on at the wrong time? Real Time Sync is a Tablet Command feature which shares command communication with all users in your department.This helps save radio bandwidth and creates a shared operating picture. 

4. Improve Situational Awareness.

See every responding unit on the map/screen. Take a quick look at Tablet Command in action in this 5:30 video of an apartment fire with a rescue.  Spoiler alert: the kid made it!


5. Get Home Safe.

During a recent fire in Northern California, Tablet Command helped guide a crew to safety. Watch this 58 second video of a Marin County Battalion Chief explain how!


Tablet Command was created by two active duty firefighters to empower Incident Commanders and all responders with an easy-to-use, faster solution for managing incidents.
