Minerbox Launches Lone Star Hazmat App
Minerbox Interactive launches the Lone Star Hazmat (LSH) app. This app and custom software development sets Lone Star Hazmat apart from all other response crews in their industry. HAZGen 2:15, the Lone Star Incident Reporting and Dispatch System, was created to provide a browser-based interface by which the Lone Star managers can instigate, manage, and deliver reports on incidents in real-time. When an incident occurs whereby a truck overturns and spills gasoline all over the highway, the driver of the overturned truck would launch the HAZGen 2:15 app. When a user launches the app, their GPS coordinates are immediately identified by Lone Star Hazmat’s response team. The user is then prompted to fill out and submit the form including their name, email, and phone number. This information as well as their GPS coordinates are then transmitted to the Back-Office System. The managers at Lone Star are notified once a new incident has been reported. The incident is then processed and field personnel are dispatched to the location of the incident. An incident can also be instigated by Back-Office personnel without the use of the HAZGen 2:15 app, in the event an incident is reported via some other means. The dispatch process is also handled within the Back-Office system. The manager is able to select employees either by district or individually and they are notified of the incident and their proximity to it. A Live Map is present at all times (in the Back Office System) by which managers can monitor the locations of all active personnel and incidents.
