InciNotes is taking incident commanders into the new age of Incident Technology. It is a tool that will allow an IC to adapt to an era of "on scene" digital information gathering, sharing, and management. There is real world application for the program and can be used in any situation that requires you to stay in command and control of an incident or assignment. It has been exciting to see the program grow from concept to reality and I look forward to the program's continued success and development.Oscar Vargas, IHC capt. & ICT3
