Edit Features and Hazards

Once you have an incident created, you can edit the fault devices, location features, and/or hazards assigned to it. This section discusses the ways that you can edit the various types of devices and features within an incident. It also discusses the Devices tab, which allows you to view all incident devices on a single interface.

Various types of features can be assigned to an incident.

  • Electric Devices: These features are normally connected to the electric network. All electric devices associated with incidents are displayed on the Devices tab in Responder Explorer. Electric devices may also be referred to as electric features.

  • Non-Electric Devices: These features are normally not connected to the electric network (e.g., poles). Non-electric devices assigned to incidents do not appear on the Devices tab. Non-electric devices may also be referred to as location features.

  • Jumpers: These are line features that allow you to temporarily connect two electrical line features. For example, you may need to feed a de-energized B-phase line, in which case you should place a Jumper from a separate energized line to feed the de-energized line.

  • Hazards: A hazard indicates a problem on an electric or non-electric device. For example, you may place a broken pole hazard on a pole. A hazard doesn't correspond to a feature in the geodatabase, but rather represents a problem at the location of the feature to which it’s assigned.

  • Manage Devices: How to view and maintain incident devices using the Devices tab in Responder Explorer.
