Which CQ council is first to go live with software?

CENTRAL Highlands Regional Council in partnership with QIT Plus is leading the way as the first Queensland council to go live with emergency management software Guardian IMS.

Council announced it was implementing and testing the software in early 2019.

Coordinator emergency management and community resilience Glenn Bell said the software will benefit road users across the region not only during an emergency.

"Council now has the ability to publish road works and hazards in real-time, from the field, to its emergency management dashboard and Queensland traffic websites,” Mr Bell said.

"This may include single-lane or full road closures, flooding or physical hazards at accident sites.”

Mr Bell said the software's extensive capabilities allowed emergency services, government and other agencies to work together from remote locations.

"Guardian IMS is, like most of today's software, cloud-based and mobile-ready, allowing users from various locations to collaborate,” he said.

"Performance monitoring dashboards mean that disaster and emergency management staff across all agencies have improved situational awareness and can escalate incidents as required.

"Spatial intelligence provides real-time windows to incident locations and there are automated tools for triggers that require urgent response.”
