Incident Overview in Version 1.7.1

The incident overview screen was redesigned and refined to organize like information in blocks.  Starting at the upper left, the address and incident type block has been changed to also include the Radio Channel (TAC) Cross Street (XST), and Map page (MAP) if they are provided.  The units dispatched to the call are now displayed with their respective statuses and color code if the department has unit status as color enabled (Two Way feature).  The Incident History (Prior)  and Caller buttons are now more more prominent.  The right side is now reserved for different button options including third party Pre-Plan access, custom buttons with web links, and to support planned future enhancements.  At the lower left spacing between the icons has been increased and the size and configuration of the status button has been optimized (not pictured).
