Outcome

Penticton, British Columbia, 5.7.2019 – The Penticton Fire Department hosted the 2nd annual British Columbia Wildfire Training Symposium, which featured numerous classes and an elaborate wildfire exercise. 152 firefighters/personnel and 48 apparatus from 39 departments throughout British Columbia participated in the event, all of which were fully tracked and accounted for by using Salamander Intelligent Accountability solutions.

Accountability efforts were organized by the New Westminster Fire Department, under the guidance of Chief Tim Armstrong.

-

The majority of participants were pre-credentialled using SalamanderLive, though a handful of firefighters and all 48 apparatus were issued tags in the staging area using Salamander’s RAPID TAG. The apparatus tags were placed in the windshield of vehicles and on the doors of trailers for easy visibility.

-

Salamander’s TRACK APPs were used by team leaders and accountability officers to scan the ID badges of all participants and account for all activity throughout the event. As team leaders accounted for their team members in the field, a common operating picture was established and visible at the command post. Jointly using Command, which displays all accountability information in an ICS chart format, and the TRACK APPs ensured that given the mountainous landscape, responders experienced issues with their radio communication. Within the TRACK APP, team leaders were able to quickly search for the phone numbers of individuals involved in the event, allowing for communication to resume.

Throughout the event, a total of 6,032 responder hours and 1,583 equipment hours were accrued. Based on the costs associated with each person and piece of equipment, the total cost of the event was $821,087, a number that was automatically calculated and visible in real time within Salamander’s reporting tool.
