NEW COMPUTER AIDED DISPATCH SYSTEM!

Last week the Fire Chief and I helped set up the new Computer Aided Dispatch System at the new dispatch office. The new system is called NEW WORLD and really has a LOT of amazing features.


One of the best features is the ability to maintain notes on ANY address. These notes can be dangers, door or gate codes, long lays, etc.


We have already had our long lays updated - a matter of fact - FF Hamilton did such a good job on that project, he found 4 addresses the county didn't even know existed.


PLEASE FORWARD ME ANY ADDRESSES AND INFORMATION YOU THINK WE NEED TO MARK!


After 1-1-16 each station/shift will be able to go to the new Dispatch Office and start training on and testing the new CAD. The system will hopefully go live in either April or August 2016. We plan on keeping ACTIVE 911 as well. Front Line Apparatus will be getting upgraded tablets in 2016.

INPUT NEEDED ON MOUNTING OF HYDRO-VENT NOZZLE

The Hydro-Vent Nozzle is in my locker at Station 14 - I need some input on where we would like to mount that on Squad 14. IT MUST BE EASILY ACCESSIBLE FOR FIRE ATTACK!

EMERGENCY REPORTING - IMPORTANT MUTUAL AID vs AUTOMATIC AID CODING

It is VERY important that we CODE Automatic Aid vs. Mutual Aid correctly in our ERS reports. This DIRECTLY effects our grants as Automatic Aid gets more scoring than Mutual Aid.


ANY MEDIC 13 CALL INTO OSCEOLA IS AUTOMATIC AID GIVEN - as is any automatic fire response to SWCFT.


ANY CALL INTO MISHAWAKA, SOUTH BEND, CLAY IS MUTUAL AID GIVEN!


Please make every attempt to code this correctly - it really does matter! Thank you!
