Bombeiros are volunteer firefighters in Portugal.

They tried Eden during a simulation which became a real incident & added value immediately , straight out of the box!

See attached testimonial from the president of the APBV.



  • Proof of Concept that Eden can be used to replace the current non-functional system (using pencil and paper) to manage all emergency events from planning to first response, to larger scale incidents.
    • Currently there is no country-wide system - each department does it's own thing
  • "to show that there are IT tools to help at all levels of emergency management, not only for firefighters but to all civil protection chain"
    • some Portuguese civil protection authority personal will be attending and participating
  • Train a local deployment support team


  • Import HRM data from
    • Can export as ;-separated CSV using SQL commands
    • No need to have the output look the same as the current PDFs
    • (this system keeps crashing)
  • Use GPS from Tetra radios to show Personnel & Vehicles on the Map

Tech part should focus on Development & not cover Server Installation / Maintenance.


We are helping them with a simulation in December

TETRA radios are carried by vehicles & personnel. These broadcast GPS location which can be output from the receiver as a CSV file:

<apocsantos> id;lat;log;speed
<apocsantos> the file name is the date (now) + equipment id
<apocsantos> 20111013130311111
<apocsantos> 20111013 is the date
<apocsantos> 1303 firedepartment code
<apocsantos> 11111 the id of the radio
<apocsantos> in this case is the id of the command and control vehicle
<apocsantos> the first digit of id identifies the type
<apocsantos> (1) 1111 the id of the radio the first one in the ID means that it is a vehicle
<apocsantos> it it was a 2 it was a Human
<apocsantos> 3 - plane / helicopter

We can have a script move this file & then import it (so that each import contains no duplicates to clean laboriously).

We can import to the Trackable super-entity (sit_trackable) since that is common to both people & vehicles (assets)....we need to copy the GPS_id from the vehicle resource to the super_entity/person/asset.
