The Caldor and Dixie fires of the Summer of 2021, have made the residents of the Tahoe region keenly aware of the need for real time incident response. Many times, in an emergency situation the status is monitored by white boards at a command site. Tablet Command is a real time digital tool for incident command which was used during the Caldor fire, the Dixie fire, and several other large fires over the past few seasons. On Monday, May 9th, at 5pm please join Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a local network of entrepreneurs and professionals, to hear the story of Tablet Command. How it originated and has grown into a tool that is being used by multiple emergency response agencies in California.
Will Pigeon and Andy Bozzo will present on how Tablet Command came to be and the advantages of using a digital system over pens and paper. They will review how the platform enables the command center to develop emergency response strategies based upon current maps, create check lists of critical tasks, and enables custom configuration depending upon the organization’s requirements.
Please join us on Monday, May 9th, at 5:00 PM online at bit.ly/YouTubeTSM. The event will be available on YouTube as a livestream and after the event. Livestream for this event starts at 5:00 PM on bit.ly/YouTubeTSM, or log onto YouTube and search for Tablet Command.
The audience will be able to submit questions online during the presentation.
