We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it!
CooWee is an everyday communication platform that can instantly scale into an emergency management system.
By automating communication streams and actions performed through your organisation, CooWee brings your teams closer, maximizes productivity and increases safety.
If you love BART, then you’ll really love CooWee!
We love giving demos, so if you know of anyone who might be interested in learning how CooWee can benefit their organisation please share!
The popularity and support for the BART system has been amazing, where memberships have grown to over 10,660 individual users across 960 different groups.
These groups are predominately made up of 761 CFA Brigades and 111 SES Units, however we also have groups from Ambulance Victoria, Australian Volunteer Coast Guard and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
The ability to Attend/Decline & Acknowledge incidents, has results in a wealth of metrics allowing us to see statistics based on this data. In December alone there were over 37k uses of the attendees functionality.

We have a HUGE update for our BART users this time around, with a bunch of helpful features:
We’ve had a heap of requests from people wanting to change their ‘Alert’ and ‘Admin’ tones, so now we’ve added the option to choose your own from a list of different sounds.
We occasionally get inquiries from people who are having issues with receiving push notifications. You can now check straight away from within the app to make sure your phone is set up correctly.
On request, we can set you up to send messages from within the app. If this is something you’re interested in, please send a request through to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can choose which group you would like to send chat messages to.
Enable turn-by-turn directions with a single button within the mapping interface.
Did you know that you can sign up the rest of your brigade or unit using the System Management platform?
It’s easy – just follow the link, sign in and click on the ‘users’ menu item: BART System Management Login
You can add new users and edit user information. The best part is that you are able to fast track the sign up process for your brigade or unit so they can start using BART straight away!
The new BART Station Platform is now live & can be accessed via the normal link on the top right of the BART Website -> http://www.bart.emerg.com.au/tab/
- We recommend using the Google Chrome browser.
- For ETA to work correctly, you must set your Brigade/Units Main Marker via the ‘Marker’ screen in System Management.
I’m confused what is this ‘Station Platform’?
It’s a web-based HTML5 version of BART for use in your Station/Unit and is set & forget.
New events that arrive will automatically populate the screen, instantly showing you; the attendees list, Map and incident details.
On this screen the Attendees list will automatically refresh to show you in real-time the status of your Brigade/Unit Members including their ETA, Also includes incident timer, BOM radar info and BART availability roster access.
