Roxene Murphy – Western Australia Department of Fire & Emergency Services (DFES)
Roxene delivered innovative enhancements to the DFES incident resource management solution allowing the organisation to track, record, and manage:
- Individual requirements of team members, including medical, dietary, accommodation, and rostering requirements.
- Physical assets throughout each phase and escalation/de-escalation of an incident including, agency owned, contractor-supplied, or locally-aquired.
The new solution was deployed and used in several complex fires involving multiple agencies and enabled teams attending fire zones to check-in easily using their mobile app. Both administrative and logistics teams had complete visibility of their people on the ground, increasing the safety and effectiveness of the incident response. Comprehensive data allowed detailed financial tracking in real-time.
