- Client Department of Fire & Emergency Services
In 2013 I was given the opportunity to collaborate with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) to develop an internal portal for their Fire Investigation and Analysis unit. The aim of the project was to design a system to be used nationally that could help train and inform investigators of new techniques, developments in the field, as well as cases of interest. Another priority was to also have sections accessible to the wider firefighting community to make non-specialist personnel aware of markers for suspicious fires and other signs that could signal further investigation was necessary.
The portal needed to integrate into the Department’s existing online services, incorporate different levels of access control, support many kinds of information including PDF documents, staff-written blog posts, presentations, news clippings of interest, and specially written training packages.
