Montreal Fire Department Case Study

The Montreal Fire Department has a mobile command vehicle that they use as a command post at all their major incidents in Montreal. It’s designed to support the operations of the incident commander at a fire. It provides communication links to the outside world from the scene of an incident, it supports on-scene communications, it provides access to all their databases, all their mapping, pre-fire plans, all their computer systems of the city, hazardous material information and all kinds of other data that they might need to support the operations at the scene of a fire or any kind of major emergency.

Base Camp Connect is entirely customizable to make sure your public safety agency has a communication system suited to your specific needs.

In this case, BCC provides telephone capability and Internet access to the mobile command center. However, it’s possible to add a radio interoperability gateway to interconnect up to 10 radio networks with otherwise incompatible radios.


The Montreal Fire Department has a fixed system in its mobile command center. It’s also possible to have the mobile version that comes in a ruggedized carrying case. In both cases, BCC is operational in minutes.


Base Camp Connect empowers emergency managers by proposing communications go-kit that are simple to use, portable, configurable, and that doesn’t require training to operate them.
