The Incident Dashboard

This article details how to use the Incident Dashboard.

The Incident Dashboard offers the user a quick way to view information on current and new incidents within their zone, and the option to quickly view these incidents on the map. While it is similar to accessing Incidents within the Zone Dashboard, the Incident Dashboard is even quicker to access and will soon have the functionality to include multiple zones!
