The Units display is shown in the same colors as shown in RIMS. The Units and Incidents refresh automatically. Similar to RIMS, Incident Details can be accessed by clicking on the Incident or Unit.

When a Priority 1 or Priority 2 Incident is dispatched to a Unit, iRIMS can be configured to alert the user/unit of specific dispatched incidents.
There are two types of Notifications:
Vibrate. When the Incident is dispatched, the device will vibrate to notify the user of the Incident.
- Audio Alerts. If enabled, iRIMS will notify the user by playing an Alert.
Concern for security is justified when accessing station and patient records outside of the RIMS application. Several key security features are included in iRIMS to maintain a high level of security and prevent unauthorized access.
Encryption. Every session is encrypted using a SSL Certificate installed on your server. The encryption is at a minimum 128-bit encryption level.
2-Factor Authentication. As an option, the agency can enforce 2-Factor Authentication. When the option is enabled, in addition to a RIMS ID and password, the user will also need to enter a unique key which is generated and sent to their telephone or email address. 2-Factor Authentication prevents unauthorized access by someone who has obtained a user ID and password, but does not have access to the authorized user’s telephone, for example.
Authorization. iRIMS respects the security established within RIMS. If an authenticated user does not have the appropriate security in RIMS for a specific function, they will not be able to use the corresponding function in iRIMS.
Audit. When enabled in RIMS, each record accessed through iRIMS is audited with an entry in the appropriate audit log. The audit log is directly accessible in RIMS.
