  • Looking for software to manage Hazmat/WMD incidents, what are you using?

    We have been using an older version of Adashi Incident Management software for years, it is a stand alone version and very intuitive for the average firefighter to use. Problem, Adashi is no longer supporting this version, there are no new product updates. Problem solution, we used homeland security grant money to purchase the Adashi current version. Problem, the intuitiveness is gone, it integrates with CAD and AVL, both features our county does not support, long story short we returned the upgrades.

    I recently did an online demo of PEAC, which will run just fine as a stand alone or will pull in additional functions and feature if we have an internet connection. Seems fairly intuitive with a bunch of new, useful features we would likely make use of.

    My question is what are you using in your area? We are a rural county with little internet connections, what ever we use must stand up by itself without connectivity. I did a Google search and only come up with Adashi and PEAC, there must be other options out there.

    Hey fyrescue

    I recently got a demo of a new product by the guys in D4H Technologies. I think my guys would find it easy to use as it's customisable and modern. I found many of the other products like WebEOC, Adashi, D-Lan to be far too inflexible, clunky and looked like they were 20 years old.

    I don't want to link to their website as it's against FireHouse T&C's so give them a Google.

    All the best products in this space seem to require Internet connection, I was told that's because it's the best way to deliver software these days. I do believe D4H has off-line functionality.
