Montreal Fire Department Case Study

Posted by Base Camp Connect on October 14, 2016

The Montreal Fire Department has a Mobile Command Vehicle that they use as a command post at all their major incidents in Montreal. It's designed to support the operations of the incident commander at a fire. The Incident Command Post provides communication links to the outside world from the scene of an incident, it supports on-scene communications, it provides access to all their databases, all their mapping, pre-fire plans, all their computer systems of the city, hazardous material information and all kinds of other data that they might need to support the operations at the scene of a fire or any kind of major emergency. 


A few weeks ago, we had the occasion to interview the Division Chief, J. Gordon Routley, while the department was responding to a fire in downtown Montreal.




As you saw in the video, BCC provides telephone capability and Internet access to the mobile command center. However, it's possible to add a radio interoperability gateway to interconnect up to 10 radio networks with otherwise incompatible radios.

We asked to the Division Chief '' How Simple is it to Use Base Camp Connect ? '' See what he said in the video below.



The Montreal Fire Department has a fixed system in its mobile command center but it's also possible to have the mobile version that comes in a ruggedized carrying case. In both cases, BCC is operational in minutes.

Base Camp Connect provides rapidly deployable communications to public safety agencies to help them bridge communication gaps in the field. BCC empowers Military and First Responders by proposing communications go-kit that are simple to use, portable, configurable, and that doesn't require training to operate them.
