Simple Track LLC announced that its breakthrough incident command management software, Tablet Command, can now be integrated with computer aided dispatch systems. The announcement was made at APCO 2013, a major public safety communications conference.
Tablet Command is tablet-based incident command software that allows emergency managers to tap-and-drag emergency units onto an incident map, track progress against critical checklists, and time-stamp every maneuver and benchmark throughout an emergency response. Such features improve crew safety by maintaining real time accountability throughout an incident and allowing vastly more accurate after-action reviews.
Simple Track introduced Tablet Command as a stand-alone app early in 2013. Many initial users saw potential for the app to be used at an enterprise level and requested CAD integration. Simple Track developed an enterprise version and installed beta trials in several California fire departments, including Contra Costa County Fire Protection District, the cofounders’ home department.
“Tablet Command was built to be expandable with great vision and is easy to use,” according to Fire Captain Dave Lindsay of the Contra Costa County Fire Department. Lindsay has been using the software since it was released.
Tablet Command software has been adopted by emergency managers from many parts of the public safety and military community, as well as private event and natural resource companies. The software is currently the focus of a national study to determine whether time-stamped incident command enhances accountability and increases margins of safety on the fireground.
About Simple Track
Simple Track was founded in 2012 by Andy Bozzo and William Pigeon, two firefighters from the Bay Area who were compelled to design personnel safety and accountability software for tablets when they could not find anything that was simple and intuitive to track first responders.
