SAVER Project: Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) Systems

Computer-aided dispatch (CAD) systems are used by dispatchers, call-takers, and 911 operators to prioritize and record incident calls, identify the status and location of responders in the field, and effectively dispatch responders.  Responders in the field can receive messages initiated by CAD systems via their mobile data terminals, radios, and cell phones.
