How eBICard Works

1. Building Owner logs into eBICard and enters building information into Wizard (including any out-of-service fire protection system and temporary building conditions that could hinder first responder and property management efforts).

2. The eBICard application takes this information and automatically generates an eBICard for each building and automatically populates viewers with this building data so that upon logging into eBICard, First Responders have access to this information in an organized, logical format.

First Responders log into eBICard and vet the building information, create field operations guidelines unique to each building, and have the ability to map geospatially aggregate information of different types (such as hazardous materials) with links to the current weather conditions of each location.
