Creating Teams for an Incident
Teams are a group of personnel and equipment assigned to tasks. Using the Teams module, you can add new teams and edit or delete existing teams.
Teams created here will only exist for this incident. Pre-configured Teams, available for any incident, can be created using the administrative module.
- Log into the Crisis Track Console.
- Choose an incident next to Existing Incident and click Select.
- Click the Teams icon
From here you can see a table of the teams that currently exist. Each team can be edited or deleted. You can also create new teams or change the status of a team. Team status levels can be set as Staged (available to be assigned to a task), Assigned (assigned to a task), Active (currently operating), or Closed (not active). You can use the Refresh button at the top right to reload this table to see any changes made since the page was opened.
