New Functions Make EMLive even More Useful to Public Safety Agencies


EMLive on Various Devices

Symposium’s new game-changing mobile incident system has a host of new features. Now, in addition to real-time incident info and mapping, responding personnel can receive customized incident alerts, see the location of vehicles responding in live time, and view any relevant RMS-based premise data, all on any web-enabled PC, tablet or smartphone.

Fast and Wide Adoption by Agencies Large and Small

EMLive is being adopted very quickly by practically all our clients, who immediately recognized the benefits that come with the ability to push critical real-time response info to responders’ personal devices, quickly and securely.

Sue Dawson, Manager of Communications at Barrie Fire & Emergency Services, is a big advocate for the system:
EMLive’s a great resource. Firefighters are getting updates from the CAD and RMS right on their phones, and seeing what’s happening as it happens. It’s far more economical for the smaller departments we dispatch than putting a mobile in every truck, and they get access to the info far faster than they would otherwise.

Secure and Customized Access

While EMLive provides info to the public via an unencrypted public portal (as is demonstrated on the main page at symposium-live.com), it lets departments provide more detailed information to their personnel via individualized password-protected accounts with encrypted data transfer to provide a higher level of security. Administrators have the ability to set permissions for each account, and to easily disable an account remotely, should the need arise. As well, info pushed to EMLive from CAD, RMS and other systems is “one-way”, leaving no route to access these systems from an outside source.

Seamless Integration with CAD, RMS, and Mobile Data

EMLive draws info directly from the CAD and Mobile as they’re updated by the dispatchers and responding personnel, as well as premise and pre-fire plan info from FIREHOUSE and other RMS systems. GPS/AVL, alarm monitoring info, as well as information from other third-party systems are all integrated, providing responding personnel with a comprehensive real-time snapshot of the entire spectrum of available incident information.

Data is always up-to-date, and presented in a format that is simple, easy to see, and easy to act on. Because it’s browser based, you don’t even have to download an app. This makes EMLive compatible with the widest range of mobile-enabled devices, simplifies deployment across the department, and ensures immediate access to updates.

Even More Features in the Works

With such wide adoption and enthusiastic response, EMLive is fast becoming an essential part of fire department operations throughout the US and Canada. And with more and more departments lining up to adopt it, we’re rolling out even more features designed to make emergency response faster, safer, and more effective.  One of these is our upcoming Tactical View, which will provide incident managers and other decision makers with a powerful, multi-layer real-time view of incidents throughout their region of operations.
