Harnessing IR3 for Smarter Incident Management

13 March 2024

In incident response, every second is precious. Recent data paints a stark picture of the challenges faced by response teams across the UK. With an average of a 999 call every 3 seconds and response times for priority calls stretching to hours, the need for innovation has never been more pressing (GOV.UK, 2022; BBC News, 2023). Amidst these daunting statistics, IR3 emerges as a beacon of hope – a transformative tool that promises to revolutionise incident response management.


IR3’s Resource Deployment Module

Imagine a bustling control room, where the pulse of urgency is palpable. Here, in the nerve centre of incident response, IR3’s Resource Deployment module takes centre stage. It’s a symphony of efficiency, precision, and foresight. With IR3, controllers wield unprecedented power – the ability to instantly assess available resources, from vehicles to personnel, and deploy them with surgical precision to where they’re needed most. It’s not just resource allocation; it’s resource optimisation in real-time.

Key Features:
  1. Efficiency Redefined: IR3 eliminates the cumbersome processes of manual resource requests. Controllers seamlessly identify available assets, streamlining deployment and shaving precious time off response efforts.

  2. Precision Deployment: With IR3, there’s no room for guesswork. The system ensures that the right resources – with the appropriate skills and equipment – are deployed promptly. This isn’t just about response time; it’s about maximising the effectiveness of every deployment.

  3. Insights from the Past: IR3 doesn’t just focus on the present; it learns from the past. By providing comprehensive historical analysis, IR3 empowers managers to refine future strategies based on past performance, ensuring continuous improvement.

The Impact in Numbers

Recent statistics underscore the urgency for change. While every 999 call demands immediate attention, the reality is that priority calls often face agonisingly long wait times. In Gloucestershire, the average response time for priority calls stands at a staggering 18.5 hours (BBC News, 2023). Against this backdrop, IR3 offers a glimmer of hope. By optimising resource allocation and streamlining deployment processes, IR3 has the potential to drastically reduce response times and improve overall efficiency. By seamlessly integrating Airwave radio GPS data and cutting-edge technology, IR3 empowers organisations to make data-driven decisions and transform their incident response capabilities. The benefits are clear: optimised resource utilisation, effective incident resolution, and strategic planning.


Empowering All Emergency Service Fleets

IR3 isn’t just a tool – it’s a lifeline. From police forces racing against time to reach priority calls to fire departments mobilising resources to contain blazing infernos, every second counts. Ambulance services navigating through congested streets to deliver life-saving medical assistance also rely on swift and efficient deployment of resources. In this high-stakes environment, IR3 emerges as a critical asset for all emergency services. By providing real-time insights into resource availability, operational status, and historical analysis, IR3 equips emergency responders with the tools they need to make split-second decisions.
