The CAD2CAD Exchange allows the sharing of non-sensitive, fire Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) data between the operational CAD systems of Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax. Jurisdictions can now view the real-time status of fire units and request resources from one another in mutual aid responses which currently occur over 40 times per day. This real-time data interface supporting 24 x 7 mission-critical emergency functions has improved mutual aid coordination, information and situational awareness, reduced dispatch times, and improved incident response times and service to the community.
