next back Updating the Unit Roster with an MDC

(Tab and repeat as needed to fill in other positions.) Repeat for other personnel and press the Enter key.
next back MDC Unit Roster IDs and Positions Notes: Press the 1RST button again to display the updated information. Confirm that all the information is accurate.
next back MDC Unit Capabilities Change the Unit Capabilities: Click or press the 1RST button on the MDC toolbar. Wait for the current unit screen to appear. Press the Tab key enough to move to the first capabilities box. A pick list will appear. Choose a capability. Continue to tab and add capabilities as needed. Confirm all the information is accurate.

next back PAR Options Retrieve Unit Rosters from the MDC by: Unit Dispatch Group (Incident) Name
next back PAR: Unit ID Retrieve a Unit Roster by Unit ID: Click or press the 3PAR button on the MDC toolbar. Wait for the Personnel Accountability screen to appear. Press the Tab key on your keyboard to move to the Unit ID field. Type in the Unit ID and press the Enter key on your keyboard. Wait for the resulting screen to appear.

next back PAR: Future Functionality (FYI) The dispatch screen has been changed to include a talkgroup. Future functionality calls for the incident talkgroup (e.g., 7G) to be included on the dispatch screen. When this new feature is implemented into dispatching, Incident Commanders will be able to query unit rosters for their specific incident.
