The following information was distributed by DFES recently:

Introducing the Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) Replacement Project

  • Will replace FCAD with Motorola PremierOne (P1 CAD) – a commercial off the shelf (COTS) product that is proven globally and recently implemented at WA Police
  • Will replace Mobile Data Terminals (MDT’s) in career fire appliances with compatible software and hardware

What is P1 CAD for DFES

  • COTS product – can be localised (provisioned) not customised to align to DFES requirements on items such as:
    • Incident Types
    • Equipment and Stations
    • Address and Locations
  • We change business process to use P1 CAD functionality
  • We can drive innovation with access to regular global updates
  • We share infrastructure platforms with WA Police to improve security and support

Where and what will be available

  • P1 CAD (Full suite) operating at ComCen and available in SOC and MOC
  • CAD Mobile available in career fire appliances with MDT’s
  • CAD Lite (reduced functionality) will be available in ROC’s

What’s in it for you

  • Capacity for better resource planning
    • ROC’s will now have visibility of resources in P1 CAD with the ability to update resource status
    • Resources state-wide will be sourced and maintained on P1 CAD
    • Positions us for the future to better manage state-wide response and resources
  • You may notice different practices from ComCen when dispatching

When will it happen

  • P1 CAD scheduled to rollout prior to the 2018/2019 Bushfire Season
  • Replacement of MDT’s in career fire appliances will follow a couple of months later
