Situational awareness is the key to effective emergency management. The BART dashboard provides for a Geo-enabled common operating picture, which empowers users to make the best decisions at the right times.
Real-time visibility of incidents, teams and resources allows for accurate situational intelligence of any emergency situation.
The Dashboard provides and overall view of the brigade, unit or group as well as functionality relating to the management of the brigade, unit or group during an incident.
It provides a view of members responding to an incident with their ETAs, availability, incident location on the map, route to the incident, satellite view as well as the street view of the incident location, satellite weather view, vehicles deployed, a printed map ready to take, voice reading out the message, etc.
In addition, the operator at the station can record attendance on behalf of members as well as set availability.
Toggle between attendees, those who are available and the crew builder. This will give you a better idea of how many people you can expect to attend an incident, based on their set availability. If too many people are set as ‘not available’, arrangements can be made sooner rather than later.
What do I need?
To use the BART Dashboard you need a computer or laptop with access to the internet, and a computer monitor or television screen. Many stations find that a wall mounted television monitor is the most effective setup, with some opting for multiple screens.
How do I set it up?
