The RI Community Konnex program utilizes the CIAN radio network with the newly developed Incident Management & Alerts System (IMAS) as the hub of all of the emergency incidents happening with the state.  Members of the Community Konnex program are able to manage all of their text or email alerts by choosing the incident type of their choice using the member's section of the IMAS system.

 

 

The IMAS  approach is unique in computer aided dispatch systems in that if offers two distinct user groups. 

  • General membership known as "Members"
  • Personnel membership which consist of Trainees, Responders, Dispatchers and Administrators

These two distinct groups allow IMAS to be the first Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) software to be used by both the organization's personnel and subscribers of the community.

A "Members" account permits those outside the organization (such as community members, neighbors, residents, etc.) to customize their notification alerts they receive from their IMAS account.  "Members" can customize alerts by incident type and method the notification is sent out; either by SMS Text or by email address.  Each time an incident is dispatched that matches the incident type(s) set by the Member, they will receive an alert and follow up information as progress is made in resolving the incident. 

The Incident Management & Alerts System is the central hub of UCESA CIAN and RIPEG radio networks.
