Situational Awareness and Coordination Features

Preplans

When CAD dispatches, ADASHI auto-retrieves relevant local data so it is loaded and waiting the moment you open the program: site and floor plans, area photos, chemicals, and hazard inventory/location, storage tanks, sprinkler systems, hydrant locations, contact information, and more. ADASHI auto-displays any preplan data associated with an address. No fumbling with paper. No switching between programs. It’s all here.

Preplans
AVL Automatic Vehicle Location
AVL

Keep track of your team to the incident. Full mobile AVL tactical view automatically displays current locations of vehicles along with the assigned locations for all units responding to the incident. Easily see any annotations made by the Incident Commander using ADASHI Command Post.

NIMS resource map
Custom map views
Custom Map Views with local GIS layers

Create custom map views to meet different needs. Use a dual-map display and select any combination of Geographic Information System (GIS) feature layers most relevant for your role or situation. Quickly identify hydrants, sewage/power lines, nearby points of interest (schools, hospitals, transport hubs) and more to create a customized view.

Incident software map
Complex search
Complex Search

Search the geographic database (including local information you’ve added) for complex features of interest within a region or nearest to a particular location. You could search for all schools within the AEGL-1 hazard area during a chemical event, display them on the map, and export to an automatic call-out system for reverse-911 notification.

Hazard Identification Tools

Quick reference tools help first responders assess the situation; ascertain chemical agents, potency, geographic range, toxicity and personal safety requirements. Touchscreen graphics help you identify incident type in general or very specific terms.

Sensor Detection & Tracking

ADASHI acquires measurement data from networked chemical, biological and radiological sensors and displays the sensor’s location, output and alarm status on the map. Information from sensors and detectors can be integrated to automatically deliver alarms, emails and geospatial data regarding tracking and aerial dispersion models. ADASHI decision support tools draw from as many sources of intel and data as you can provide.

Aerial dispersion modeling
Aerial Dispersion Modeling for HazMat and Terrorist Incidents

Get automated airborne hazard prediction and map visualizations of hot/warm zones, isolation distances, and evacuation areas based on real-time weather. The program sets ALOHA model parameters for the worst-case scenario, but can be easily modified if better information becomes available at the scene. ADASHI is the only software in the world to instantly perform this complex algorithm incorporating real-time weather and ALOHA/CAMEO.

Pictometry and Spatial Analysis Tools 

Seamlessly integrate Pictometry's oblique 4-view imagery and measurement tools for enhanced display and analysis. Pictometry's display is automatically synchronized with ADASHI’s standard 2-D maps and lets you visualize the scene which may be obscured by night, fog, or smoke. See best approaches and physical impediments. Plan tactical logistics and determine line and ladder requirements with the help of spatial analysis tools that measure distances and building heights.

Secure team communications
Secure Team Communications

ADASHI provides secure vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-CAD communication. Identity-enabled real-time email and text messaging improve collaborative response between vehicles, dispatch, and large multi-entity response groups. Incident data is distributed to other ADASHI systems that share the same digital network. ADASHI’s unique Electronic Huddle Diagramming features incident synchronization to ensure everyone is on the same page.

Incident Characterization Features

Feedback
Incident Feedback, Details and Intel

Locate, identify and characterize any incident or sub-incidents on the map. CAD may define incident generally as hazmat or medical; you can specify the exact nature of the incident.  You may have multiple incidents in progress. For more complex situations, you can also locate and characterize separate components within a single incident. The program determines incident location either automatically from your CAD system or manually from user input.

Details and intel
weather acquisition
Weather Acquisition

Real-time weather information is at all times automatically acquired by ADASHI. Weather information is pulled from multiple sources including portable MET stations, NOAA, AWS, Weatherbug, manual entry, and internet sources. You set the default source, but can toggle between other availble sources to compare and select the preferred data-set. Integrated weather works in unison with the aerial dispersion models.

Organization and resources
Organization and Resources

See the incident command structure as defined/altered by the Incident Commander, along with resouces assigned or available to respond. Also shows the location of resources on the map (AVL).

Nims compliant smart forms
Smart Forms

Reduce paperwork with NIMS-compliant smart forms that auto-fill based on your interaction with the program. All the info entered and actions taken in ADASHI are logged, time-stamped and placed into the appropriate forms – Incident Action Plans, 201’s, etc. Got your own special forms? You can incorporate them to be part of your work-flow. We’re gonna save you a heckuva lot of pen and paper time.

All Hazard Response Tools

All-hazard guidance
All-Hazard Guidance

ADASHI automatically filters and presents only the guidance relevant to the specific incident type, hazard, and your incident response role. Specific guidance is drawn from a broad range of hazardous situations including fire, crime, medical, search and rescue, and natural disasters. Guidance includes checklists and federally mandated procedures.

ADASHI integrates the critical chemical hazard data that First Responders need from the ERG and CAMEO emergency response databases and provides data for thousands of specific chemicals including emergency procedures, first aid, protective equipment, and material properties (MSDS).

Incident Response Checklists

ADASHI provides a list of relevant incident- and hazard-specific SOP and federally mandated procedures for you to associate with the incident. As you check off each item on the associated checklists, your action is recorded in the built-in Incident Actions Log. The program automatically delivers the appropriate checklists based on facility, incident type, landmarks and more. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), first aid checklists, Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), and your own customized routines are there under the Guidance tab.

Routing and Navigation Tools

CAD and 911 integration
CAD and 911 Integration

ADASHI integrates with your Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) and 911 systems for two-way communications and status checks. ADASHI is compatible and integrates easily with most CAD systems, linking up and auto-sharing information to speed the flow of communication. You can also use ADASHI DISPATCH as a standalone product (without CAD) to manually enter the incident details and location.
