5.3 Release Introduces the Assessment Tab

Release 5.3 will be deployed on Training 6/9/2015 and to Production on 7/2/2015

New Functionality and Enhancements



Assessment Tab

  • The Assessment tab allows consolidated access to the relative risk and organization assessments, customized risk tables, and Benefits slider. Incorporating the Assessment tab into your workflow provides a more intuitive method for accessing these functions and developing inputs for a decision. See About the Assessment Tab for further information.

Creating and Editing Customized Risk Tables

  • Users can create and edit customized risk tables on the Assessment tab, or on the Risk vertical tab if editing a decision using the Default Decision Editor.

    Values tables generated from drawing planning areas or completed FSPro, NTFB, or STFB runs can be saved as custom tables, and then modified to display values information in a way that is meaningful and specific to an incident. You can add rows and/or columns to these tables, as well as modify existing fields, enabling you to align information from both inside and outside of WFDSS to help fire managers and line officers accurate assess and evaluate those influences on the fire that affect risk based decision making. You cannot create a custom risk table without a planning area or a completed analysis. See Creating and Editing Customized Risk Tables for further information.

Organization Assessment pages

  • You can access an Organization Assessment from the new Assessment tab.

Situation Map

  • The Situation Map page displays by clicking the Situation tab or the small map icon located on the right side of the page in the incident perspective. Accessing the Situation Map from the Situation tab embeds the map in the application's main window whereas accessing it via the map icon opens the map in its own window. Accessing it from the icon allows the greatest flexibility as you can both edit a decision and view the Situation Map simultaneously.
