Getting Started

  1. Get an account
  2. Install the Team app on your device
  3. Login to receive your broadcast feed


  1. Get an account

    When setting a new BART account, the process will depend on:

    1. Whether your brigade or unit is already using BART or
    2. Whether BART is completely new to you and your brigade or unit


    Your brigade or unit is already using BART

    You need to register through the BART website.

    After you have submitted your registration through the website, the BART administrator for your brigade or unit will be notified. If they approve your application for membership, you will be given a username and password that can be used to login to the system. If they reject your application, you will not be granted access to the BART application.

    How do I know if my brigade, unit or flotilla is already registered with BART?

    If your brigade or unit is already listed within the drop down menu when registering for your BART membership, there will be an existing BART administrator. If the name of your brigade or unit is not already listed, you are the first person to register for BART.

    If you have any questions regarding whether your brigade or unit is currently using the BART system, please contact us by emailing


    Your brigade or unit is NOT already using BART

    You need to register through the BART website.

    If your brigade, unit or flotilla doesn’t have an existing BART administrator, you will be required to verify that you are allowed access to the requested data feed (this will be a different method for each type of feed).

    Membership Processing

    The processing times for new brigades, units or flotillas can vary, as we manually process new memberships to ensure the maximum level of security is maintained. Please, allow 3-5 working days for your new membership to be processed.

  5. Login

    When first logging into the app, you will need to choose between the ‘Quick View’ or more advanced ‘List View’:



    Quick View

    Quick View is a good option for people who are new to BART, as a single incident is displayed in a simple to read format. You can swipe across the screen to view different incidents, or use the arrows provided:


    List View

    The List View is a more advanced way to look at incidents and alerts as they come through. Apart from having a more condensed interface that displays multiple alerts, it has additional options not available on the Quick View.


    Alerts and Messages

    If your brigade, unit or flotilla has an active data feed you should start to receive alerts and messages after a short amount of time. If you are not receiving any alerts, please see our troubleshooting guide.
