The Incidents Module provides users an easy to use way to gather information from the community, catalogue details of an incident, investigate the incident, and to analyze trends over time.

Incidents may be reported in many ways, and Salute makes it easy to gather information directly via the Community Portal or track information if an incident is reported via phone/radio/email/in-person.

Incident Reporting Request

The most efficient and common way that incidents are reported to Salute is via the Community Portal. By selecting Request/Report, from the landing page, Community members can report an incident to the safety team.

Incident Report on Salute Portal 

Once an incident has been submitted, it arrives in the request section of the Salute Portal.
