9k+ population, 18k+ in Summer
Integration with FIREHOUSE RMS
Sinirji Mobile Incident Alerting
It’s our pleasure to announce that our CAD and mobile data systems are now
serving the Onset Fire district. Located in the
greater town of Wareham, Massachusetts, Onset is a combination department with
60+ personnel operating out of two stations. With a doubling of population in
the Summer months Onset FD is quite busy for their size, responding to
approximately 2,000 calls per year.
The high relative call volume combined with the reliance on on-call
personnel contributed to Onset choosing to upgrade their dispatch and
response operations with Symposium. Now, with our integrated CAD and Sinirji
mobile alerting, volunteer personnel get alerts on their phones for each
incident, and have access to real time, continuously-updated info on all
aspects of the situation.
When a call comes in to Onset dispatch and is accepted in the CAD, on-call
Onset firefighters are alerted with the call type, location, notes, and other
particulars, directly and securely on their mobile devices via Sinirji
Personnel can mark themselves as responding in Sinirji, and this is fed back
directly to the CAD at dispatch. The map-based location of responding
personnel is displayed both to other responders and in the CAD, and is updated
in real time. And as the call info is updated, personnel see the changes in real time
as well. They in turn can add notes, update their response status, and access
info from the FIREHOUSE RMS. They can even see the location,
status, and flow rates of hydrants, directly in Sinirji.
Just as importantly for combination departments Sinirji users can mark
themselves available or unavailable, either dynamically or based on their
schedule. This way only on-call personnel receive alerts, while making it so
that command staff can see what their available manning levels are at all
“Sinirji is revolutionizing response for volunteer and combination
departments”, says Symposium President Robert Day.
“Instead of getting a short initial blast of info as with most incident
alerting systems, Sinirji gives them continuous, two-way, full-spectrum
info on the evolving situation. They arrive at scene fully prepared for
what they’re getting into, with the info they need to deliver the most
effective emergency response.”
We’re proud to be helping protect the people of Onset and the surrounding
area, and look forward to continuing to provide the department with the very
best in technology, service, and support for many years to come.
