“The use of Rhodium enhanced this incident to allow for vital information to be shared and to effectively mitigate the incident. The use of Rhodium was a vital asset in the mitigation of the hazardous material release and effective use of command and control capabilities.” Deputy Fire Chief Jack Snyder III, City of Elko Fire Department

  • Coordinating information between incident commander and EOC more than 50 miles away
  • Identify and communicate the location of hazards and the decontamination corridor
  • Accountability of personnel during a hazardous response


When a train carrying military grade munitions and chemicals derailed in rural Nevada, the City of Elko Fire Department immediately deployed Omnigo’s Incident Management solution powered by Rhodium to help coordinate their response.



With Rhodium, members of the EOC were able to record valuable information while the HAZMAT teams were still responding to the incident site. Upon their arrival, emergency personnel on site were able to see the information input by the EOC and enhance it by adding information on hazard zones, placards, and personnel assignments.
