Tablet Command is the premier tactical worksheet app for iPad. Tablet Command was created by a team of career emergency responders and professional software developers, and is useful in response to all incident types.

Tap and drag units onto an emergency scene, map progress against critical checklists, and time-stamp every maneuver throughout an incident.

- Drag and drop units to create assignments and set automatic PAR timers
- Toggle between scene views—satellite, map or worksheet view
- Timestamp every action
- Create groups and divisions that can accept multiple units
- Set automatic PAR timers on each unit
- Customize unlimited checklists for instant access during an incident

Customer Reviews

Awful App


I purchased this some time ago and have probably uninstalled/reinstalled it x3, each time trying to convince myself that it could be useful. It's not. Doesn't flow well, doesn't let you visualize the incident overall quickly

Real Time Usefull


Just started using the App. I think it has lots of potential. Simple and easy to use. It was easy to set up and customize for my Department. Add a drawing tool with ICS symbology for open line and it should be a hit in the west. I'd like to see some customizable standard phrases for the notes, This would help track our standard progress reports. CAD integration would be cool but might bog it down. One other feature that would be nice would be the ability to import addition images to the standard set.



TC took only a few hours to learn at a usable level. A drawing tool would be great for wildland fire, as well offering a way to quickly assign various personnel to trucks in a volunteer setting. The ability to send a report by email is easy and accurate. The map layer sure beats the bulky mapbook we carry in the trucks.
