Show Multiple Responder Features

Available in ArcMap.

The Show Multiple Responder Features tool allows users to select an area on the map and locate incidents/calls associated with all selectable features (i.e. incidents, electric features, location features, hazards, and loadpoints) within the polygon. If devices have been selected in Responder Explorer before using this tool, the original selection set is cleared before selecting a new one.

While drawing the polygon, it is possible to click outside of the map display (e.g. on the Table of Contents). This can result in a vertex on a portion of the map that is not visible.

NOTE: Responder Explorer must be open to display incident data.
  1. On the Responder toolbar in ArcMap, click the Show Multiple Responder Features button.

    The cursor should look like this: .

  2. Click the map to create a polygon around the selected area.
    Each click creates a vertex. A layer must be set as selectable before this tool can choose features and display corresponding incidents in Responder Explorer.
  3. Double-click to complete the polygon.

    In the above example multiple features are selected. Calls are shown in yellow and incidents in blue/gray.

    All incidents associated with the selectable features (i.e. incidents, electric features, location features, hazards, and loadpoints) located within the polygon appear in Responder Explorer. Calls are highlighted on the Calls tab and devices on the Devices tab.

    The above example shows a selected incident on the Incidents tab

    The above example shows selected calls on the Calls tab

    The Incidents “Selected From ArcMap in My Regions (2/17 Incidents)” label above the incident grid includes the number of incidents selected (2) and the total number of incidents in progress (17). To view all other incidents or calls, change the View filter.

    NOTE: You can configure Responder Explorer to only expand and highlight the selected incidents/calls within the grid and keep all other incidents and calls visible as well. This functionality existed prior to 10.1.1. To return to this process, configure Responder Explorer using the steps in the Configuration Guide.

    The polygon cannot intersect itself. Below is an example of an invalid polygon:

    If the incident is not shown in Responder Explorer because the filter applied removes it from the list, the below message appears. For example, the selected device has an incident with a crew assigned, but the Responder Explorer filter is set to Unassigned. The selected incident has been filtered out of the Responder Explorer display. Select Yes to return the filter to Show All. If you don’t want the selected incident to be displayed in Responder Explorer, select No.
