We mention this first as we feel it is the most important feature we offer. Emulating the ease of a traditional tactical worksheet, ICx is the simplest to learn product on the market for command and control of emergency incidents. Give it a try and you will agree that it has the shortest on-boarding learning curve of all like products on the market.
Born out of Need
The concept of ICx was conceived with frustration at what was being offered for digital command options. We were looking for something to use in our jobs that would work effortlessly during emergency responses. It had to be as easy as writing on a tactical worksheet, keep detailed record of resource assignments, track individual members, provide several scene timers, and not require a long learning curve. We created the first version of ICx and put it into service to test it. Our emergency scenes became better organized overnight, which led to safer incidents. After the testing in our department, we opened it up and sold the software to several early-adopter departments, and took input from them and continued development to what we offer today; an intuitively designed tactical worksheet that integrates staffing to create a full fledged accountability tool.
ICx has a number of features that incident commanders use everyday, and some detail features that may only be used on large scale incidents. We are continually adding features to make this the best program on the market. Below is a partial list of current features,
Battalion 3 Technologies’ ICx: Incident Command x is Deemed Consistent with NIMS Concepts and Principles By Evaluators.
ICx: Incident Command x, a Windows based incident command, control and accountability program was evaluated by the Supporting Technology Evaluation Project (STEP). STEP is managed by the Preparedness-Technology, Analysis, and Coordination (P-TAC) Center, which is operated by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) under contract with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Preparedness Directorate (FEMA NPD). The test was performed to evaluate the system’s incorporation of NIMS concepts and principles.
Following evaluation, it was determined that ICx is consistent with all NIMS criteria; Hazards, Preparedness, Communications and Information Management; Resource Management; Command and Management. ICx also applies to 12 Minimum Product Requirements.
