Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service is part of the Department of Environment and Science in Queensland. They are responsible for the management of 3 million hectares in the Southern part of Queensland in Australia.
Here’s all the good stuff
Unable to monitor multiple different asset types
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services have many different asset types from on-foot to heavy machinery. This variety in assets, combined with them often operating in remote locations without reception presented many issues.
Industries: Firefighting, Environmental Protection
Location: Queensland, Australia
Queensland Parks and Wildlife manages over 3 million hectares of land in the southern part of Queensland. From managing remote tracks to keeping campsites up to standard, or active wildfire prevention the team have a lot to keep them busy.
With a significant portion of these operations occurring in areas that lack cellular service, many rangers will often find themselves trekking out to extremely remote areas in order to complete their tasks.
The fact that we can monitor exactly where our park rangers are and what they’re doing means we can always respond with the necessary assistance they may need.
How the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service uses TracPlus
Thanks to TracPlus, Queensland Parks and Wildlife are able to monitor all of their assets, be it heavy machinery, vehicle or lone ranger in one singular view of the truth.
With lots of their rangers often spending time in remote locations, the RockSTAR allows for reliable, two-way communication in order to ensure their safety.
Having a visual representation of where their staff are in a landscape, overlayed with whatever mapping layer they want allows them to further communicate and organise their assets effectively as well.
Emergency response features ensure that if anything goes wrong, they can dispatch emergency services instantly. For example the inertia alarm on vehicles will automatically alert them if a vehicle has rolled over, allowing for instant emergency responses.
