Adding Locations

Locations typically describe the facilities in your organization. (City Park, Town Hall, General Hospital, etc.)


For organizations that have multiple campuses, each with multiple facilities on them, you may decide to use Locations to describe the campus. Then you can use Bldg./Units to describe the structures on each campus. *Note: There are user roles in Incident that can be restricted to the Location level, but not the Bldg./Unit level.

How to Add Locations

  • Click on the Add link in the Actions Menu.
  • Click the Locations link. Fill in the following fields on the Add/Update Location screen:
    • The Location Code is only used for database purposes and does not appear on any pages or reports. If you do not enter a Location Code, the system will generate one for you.
    • Enter the Location Description (the name of the facility or campus).
    • Enter the Number of Occupants, Square Footage, Date Built and any Notes for this location. This information is not required and can be added at any time.
    • Click Add/Update Record to save.
