Backup & Disaster Systems
State-of-the-art CAD Backup and CAD Transfer System for PSAP’s and their CAD Systems.
Now, EDC has taken its CAD2CAD exchange to a whole new level with the introduction of its NG‑CAD‑X/4, CAD4CAD Backup and Disaster systems. Now, agencies can back up each other!
Two Levels of Service
1 - NG-CAD-X / 4 Backup
For PSAP’s that are still operational, but must be left unmanned, NG-CAD-X/4 Backup maintains operational continuity.
2 - NG-CAD-X / 4 Disaster
When a PSAP is operationally compromised, or defunct, NG-CAD-X/4 Disaster provides the pathways to keep units dispatched and incidents managed, even when the jurisdiction’s CAD system is out of commission.
NG-CAD-X / 4 Backup
CAD4CAD system backup can be implemented when a PSAP must be evacuated, but the infrastructure remains operational. An example of this might involve a bomb or pathogen threat, or possible damage to the structure in the event of an earthquake, (pending structural review) where personnel are required to (temporarily) leave immediately.
NG-CAD-X / 4 Backup benefits:
Stations responding to incidents operate in their typical manner.
Station alerting remains the same (using the Alarm MCU’s), and unit MCT’s (mobile computer terminal) work the same way as they would under normal operations.
All incidents continue to be recorded in the CAD’s RMS system.
NG-CAD-X / 4 Backup – Ideal for smaller agencies dispatch sharing:
Transfer dispatch duties to a neighboring agency – while logging data into their own RMS and seeing unit AVL status.
Alternative to dispatch consolidation.
NG-CAD-X / 4 Disaster would be implemented when a PSAP must be evacuated, and its immediate infrastructure is compromised (long-term evacuation)
NG-CAD-X / 4 Disaster shall provide backup services in a more complex manner including:
The transferring of 911 calls.
Taking over full dispatch duties.
Logging of units.
Capable of continuing to send dispatch requests and incident updates to both units and stations.
Relocate stations to other planning and staging areas such as hospitals and schools.
