Decision Support Through Visualisation For Swedish Fire Brigade

Barco : 05 May, 2010  (Application Story)
Firemen in Sweden are making use of control room management suite software and hardware from Barco for improved information flow and decision making
The Swedish fire brigades have over 200 control centres and work with almost 20,000 fire fighters, so getting information distributed is crucial for a good operation. Previously, Barco's Control room Management Suite (CMS) software and hardware were installed in the control centres of Linkoping, Göteborg, Hasselholm, Karlstad, Lulea, Orebro, Ostersund and Västeras. Now, both companies will provide the Swedish fire brigades with the opportunity to network these centres based on the already installed equipment, without major additional costs. A big advantage of having networked control rooms for the fire brigades is that they can bring crucial independent information together to different points of decision making within their local organization, but also to external stakeholders such as the police, emergency services, town council, hospitals and many more.

"Thanks to its scalability the system provided by Barco can be easily implemented in various phases," comments Christer Norden from Impact Europe. "We can start by offering our customers a basic component and gradually build up the system according to their needs and budget."

"We chose to implement the technology provided by Barco because it offers us long term flexibility," says a representative from Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency. "The system allows us to choose the most efficient display solution for each control room while keeping a maximum level of collaboration thanks to the CMS software. With the Barco solution, we can create a national wide network of independent working fire brigades that can collaborate as an efficient uniform organization when the situation requires."

Barco's CMS software is an advanced control room management suite which allows for easy display wall management, efficient collaboration and fast decision making in any control room. Barco's control room management suite provides operators and decision-makers with easy access to information and allows them to connect to information, to configure how it is displayed, and to collaborate in the most efficient way.
