Incident Collaboration to Drive Better Outcomes
What Is Tactical Incident Collaboration?
Incident task management collaboration is the recognition that personnel in a public agency, organization, school, university, community and healthcare facility has a role to play during an event and understands what needs to be done, when it needs to happen, and who needs to take responsibility. An incident takes many forms and may not be an isolated event, as multiple situations may unfold simultaneously. At the end of the day, incidents are opportunities for collaborative discovery — for unification across a safety ecosystem made up of communities, companies, schools, and other agencies that need to navigate problems as they arise, and consistently learn and grow to help mitigate future events.
The initial moments of any event are crucial for any organization, school or community, with the early actions taken having an impact on the outcome. Immediately after an incident occurs, the only resources you have are the people who are already there and any preloaded templates or content. Where a more specialized response is required, those on-site may need to find time before those best suited can be brought into the response.
Yet providing those on hand with the key steps will ensure response moves in the right direction. Critical information is collected, mitigating the effects of the incident immediately and increasing the effectiveness of the response as experts arrive on the scene. Rave refer to this as “tactical incident collaboration,” which automates the tasks required in response and provides all employees with proactive actions to take and preloaded resources to use during the onset of an event. Immediately notifying the right people, allocating the right resources, and taking the right actions can save lives.
What Are the Uses for Incident Collaboration Solutions?
From communities, schools and universities to hospitals and businesses of all sizes, incident collaboration is important and needed. There could be an active assailant on campus, a severe storm striking a community or a business needs to alert all of its staff to a critical event happening within their facility.

The Benefits of Rave’s Incident Collaboration Management Solution
Imagine a scenario in which before first responders arrive at the scene of an emergency, they have access to interactive maps of the location detailing the best access points, utility shutoffs, CCTV and accurate information about any hazards they may encounter.
First responders will also have details of the individuals who may be within the danger zone and their health profiles, detailing any special needs or mobility issues. They can also communicate with individuals or groups of individuals.
Additionally, everyone that has been assigned a task knows what they need to do, how to do it, and when to do it.

Incident Management Customer Success Stories
“The Collaborate product has redefined the way in which we handle both emergency and facilities related incidents. It has transformed response procedures from literal checklists to interactive events that incorporate not only alert, but step-by-step instructions. Collaborate events serve as a collective hub for manual processes, notifications, assigned tasks and resources.

“We were actively setting up Collaborate to help improve the speed and accuracy of emergency notifications to better protect our patients, visitors and staff. Rave helped us prioritize tornado events due to our area forecast. Less than three hours after setting up that event, we received a tornado warning for our hospital, and Rave went into action! An NWS tornado warning was received, the Collaborate event was triggered, and the system started automatically sending messages to over 4,000 contacts…within four seconds!“
