Personnel Tracking at Olympic Trials Provides Greater Accountability & Security

Share Article

Elliott Data Systems, Inc. and its local partner, Mountainland Business Systems, assisted the City of Eugene by tracking first responders, security personnel and volunteers at the Olympic Trials at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR.

Mountainland staff produced a secure bar-coded credential to identify and track security personnel using Elliott’s Mobile Solutions™ software and portable Mobile Command Cases. This identification and accountability solution was used at the Multi-Agency Coordination Center and other staging areas to identify and track security personnel and volunteer activity at the Olympic Trials. “This system has helped ensure that only authorized personnel are able to access the incident command center and other secure locations and confirm they have proper clearance, “ according to Duane Crabtree, ID Solutions Director at Mountainland Business Systems. “ We were also able to provide an accounting of where key personnel are located and provide critical reporting to the City of Eugene to show how many hours were spent at the event on various assignments.”

The Asset Manager software was integrated with the Mobile Solutions™ System to provided additional tracking of radios and other equipment used at the event. All of the activity tracked by the Mobile Solutions™ Software was viewable from OPS Center at their Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The City of Eugene recently purchased OPS Center to better manage any type of incident and manage field personnel and resources more effectively. Event data on all personnel and assets was stored and used to generate reports to verify how many people were working on-site and track volunteer hours.
