Feature Highlight: Electronic ICS Forms
The Incident Command System or ICS is an on site command and control system that was developed to standardise emergency response will allow for greater consistency and interoperability.
In following the ICS approach, there are various forms that parties need to complete. Depending on what forms teams use, from 201 to 225, completing, sharing and storing the various forms during an incident can be a struggle. So much so, that teams often complain about spending more time collecting information than actually taking action and responding.
D4H™ LIVE was designed to make it really easy to create digital versions of existing ICS Forms, Situational Reports and many other forms teams use during a response. Benefits of using digital versions of existing ICS Forms include:
Creating a Common Operating Picture
By digitizing your forms with our D4H™ LIVE Forms tool, teams can easily fill them out in the field on a tablet or laptop. As the forms are now digital, the information can automatically sync and be shared into the Common Operating Picture (COP) for all senior responders to see.
Making your Forms Easier to Fill
Digitizing forms makes them easier to fill for response personnel as responders are clicking buttons rather than handwriting free text. This has the added benefit of increasing the volume and quality of the information.
Safeguarding your Information
Now that information is being stored digitally in the cloud, it’s less likely to be misplaced…or destroyed by spilled coffee!
We all know that the less time you can spend, reporting, transcribing, collecting, collating information during and after an incident means more time doing what is most important-RESPONDING!
