IamResponding.com Can Reduce Response Times

Issue 1 and Volume 16.

IamResponding.com is used by more than 50,000 emergency responders to reduce their response times to emergency incidents, the company said.

 

IamResponding.com enables emergency responders to immediately inform their chiefs, team leaders, other members of their department or team, and dispatchers if, when and where they are responding to emergency incidents.

 

The service is used by fire departments and emergency response agencies that rely on out-of-station personnel, according to the company.

 

Emergency agencies regularly report reduced response times, as well as reduced radio and telephone traffic, as the direct result of their use of IamResponding.com, according to the company. When necessary, the company said second activations and mutual aid requests can be made sooner, and command decisions and duty assignments can be made before members even arrive.

 

Dispatch centers are able to monitor the IamResponding.com system for all of the agencies in their dispatch territory. A mass notification system provides dispatch centers with a fully redundant method of instantly communicating with every member of the emergency response entities in their dispatch territory.

 

IamResponding.com’s Web-based scheduling system enables chiefs, members and dispatchers to view who is on duty and where. Even in departments and agencies that do not schedule formal duty crews, members use the scheduling system to advise their department of their in-town availability or out-of-town unavailability.

 

Other features of IamRespodning.com include certification date tracking, a calendaring system, and tracking the service status of vehicles.

 

No software is required to use IamResponding.com, according to the company, and individual departments can be operational on the system in less than 24 hours. The company said it offers free, no-obligation, two-month trials.
