CBRN response teams benefit from IncidentShare

A couple of seconds of live real-time video can provide a clear view on the direction of a situation that cannot be shared with a still image or by radio communication as we have relied on until now

Project Description

Specialized teams from CBRN Command find IncidentShare app to be a valuable tool during incidents. The app allows receiving and transmission of video of a high quality from an incident.

“A couple of seconds of live real-time video can provide a clear view on the direction of a situation that cannot be shared with a still image or by radio communication as we have relied on until now” says Incident Commander Kristian Levy, Greater Copenhagen FD.

“Video utilizes the magnificent human capability to receive a lot of visual information, and help us improve our communication”.

When an incident occurs a quick response from the fire department is crucial. Using IncidentShare CBRN responders are able to make a dynamic risk assessment based on the live images seen and mobilize the appropriate resources to deal with the incident and thus strengthen the response.

 On-site, as well as on their way to an incident, CBRN responders are able to stream secure video images with low latency.  This allows them to increase common situational awareness and make better informed risk based decisions on the hazards they are facing.

“The app is intuitive and easy to use”, claims Incident Commander Kristian Levy. The firefighters just open the app, press the button and they are either transmitting a live video to, or receiving a live video from their colleagues.

The primary task of Greater Copenhagen Fire Department CBRN unit (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) is to handle accidents involving dangerous substances. The firefighters in the CBRN units are specially trained to deal with accidents involving dangerous substances including toxic, corrosive, oxidizing and flammable gases, liquids and solids, etc.
