All agencies that purchase the FFRS application can give free access to their dispatch center(s). This enables dispatchers to see who is currently on-duty, who is responding, and/or who is available to respond.
For some agency locations, Internet access is not available. In those cases, it can be beneficial for an agency to grant access to their dispatch centers and when resource status details are required, they can be requested via radio. Dispatch can then view the data and relay that back to those who requested it either at the station or those in the field.
