In the rush of an emergency, first responders need accurate information to make life-saving decisions. Unfortunately, valuable time is often lost locating and delivering things like blueprints, hazardous material handling instructions and other time sensitive data.
IncidentOne eliminates the problem of getting information to the scene of the incident and into the hands of the first responders.
Partnering with television broadcasters nationwide, SpectraRep’s IncidentOne leverages the power of the digital television (DTV) network to deliver data to first responders at incident scenes. Using the new digital television signals to deliver incident data has many advantages, most notably it is not subject to congestion in a time of crisis like cellular or wireless Internet.
IncidentOne sends computer files, including live video, directly to computers in command vehicles, squad cars and other locations. Transmissions are encrypted and can be targeted to specific users or groups.
IncidentOne is easy to use, providing a simple menu of choices for dispatch and client software to organize data. Only the most current versions of files are harvested, assuring accurate information is used to make decisions. After the incident, IncidentOne removes all sensitive data from that computer so it cannot fall into the wrong hands.
Having reliable blueprints, crisis plans, hazmat locations, live security camera and helicopter video helps responders do their job better and more safely. Using DTV to deliver it adds a level of interoperability and redundancy to make sure the right data gets where it is needed, when it is needed.
