This is where C&G, Logistics / Security, and Operations put their heads together... Badge System Implementation is a TEAM Decision Badges Touch ALMOST Every Section
ASSUMING YOU IMPLEMENT THE BADGE... Do we TAKE PHOTOS of EVERY ONE or some other OPTION ? It is a question of how long do you want to DELAY Resources from RECEIVING THEIR ASSIGNMENTS, what does the AGENCY ADMIN WANT and what are the SECURITY CONCERNS ?
BADGE WITH PHOTO FOR EVERYONE INCREASED ACCOUNTABILITY COST CONTAINMENT IMPROVES ONSITE SECURITY All Risk Assignments Urban Setting Maximum Benefits / Resources Delayed
Badge WITH Photo only SUPERVISORS and SINGLE RESOURCES Others / Crew Members Receive a BADGE WITHOUT Photo BADGE WITH PHOTO FOR SUPERVISORS INCREASEDACCOUNTABILITY COST CONTAINMENT IMPROVES ONSITE SECURITY Normal Fire Assignment Urban/Remote Setting Moderate Benefits / Resources NOT Delayed
OR … ANY COMBO THAT FITS THE SITUATION SUPERVISORS and SINGLE RESOURCES ONLY NOT GENERAL CREW MEMBERS

TOTAL COST TO AN INCIDENT...

NEXT STEPS New Software Review: AsureID is not a bad COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) product. A number of enhancements that would make it more effective have been identified. AsureID has indicated they are including a number of these enhancements in a new version due for release in the Fall 03. If the new enhancements are not available other software will be evaluated. The other requirement is linking/extracting the data needed for the ID Badge to/from the IRSS/I-Suite System being used by most IMTs. Paul Dzialowy, CTSP PNW 3, and myself will be researching existing COTS products for this requirement.
