Won't that just lead to complaints that the comcen operators don't have nay idea what happens out on the field?

Ask the SAAS guys how they like having comms operators that haven't ever worked on an ambulance... (I seem to recall mention of that on these forums...)

im pretty sure it will be run from the current mfs com cen. 

The way it "should" be setup it wont matter if the person is dumb or a computer genius the outcome will be the same as long as the caller gives the correct info.

Will be run by each service as far as I know, only difference is it is intergrated, and if for example the MFS comms centre goes down, they can move in to the SAAS one (in a seperate room) until their room is back on line.

SES will not have a seperate ComCen unless a high call rate for an event.
I believe a 'cutdown' version of SACAD (thus less training) will replace the existing computer database.

I remember the "original" Duke Nukem on DOS..

Never could finsih the final level in the space centre..

Remember the green  /\/  shaped (laser?) I guess, which made that typically DOS noise as you shot it at the aliens.. And literatelly exploding when you died..

Ahhhh.. Memories!! hehe..

Found http://www.intergraph.com/publicsafety/cad.aspx?country=au which gives some idea of the software application & who is using the system overseas.

Do anyother states in Australia or neighbouring countries (eg New Zealand) use this system ?

Victoria did use this system many years ago,but when the contract was up they went to something else not sure what they call it now over there,There where big problems with the intergraph system and that was one reason they did not get a second go at running the  emergency service's contracts again... I think QLD did have it for sometime but they also had problems...

did a team go over to victoria to inspect this CAD a few years back...so they probably went with Intergraph based on OLD information... ;)
