Simple Track announced that its incident command management software, Tablet Command, now can be integrated with computer-aided dispatch systems. 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.
Tablet Command is a tablet-based incident command software that lets emergency managers 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.
Simple Track installed beta trials of the CAD version in several California fire departments, including Contra Costa County Fire Protection District, the cofounders’ home department. The company said Tablet Command software has been adopted by emergency managers from the public safety and military community, as well as private event and natural resource companies. In addition, the software currently is the focus of a national study to determine whether time-stamped incident command enhances accountability and increases margins of safety on the fireground.
