There are a number of different membership types available when registering a new member.
BART membership types can be modified at any time through system administration.
Standard BART Member
Standard BART members are setup through the system administration. Each member has their own user profile, which contains their personal contact details along with any specific skills they may have.
Standard users have access to the group broadcasts that they have been set up with, and can access messages and alerts via system administration or through the BART Team app.
System administrators have access to add, edit or delete users and groups.
This type of member can see the communication within their group but can’t interact.
Observer accounts are appropriate for:
- Trainees and new members
- Regional Support or Liaison members
- Older less active members
- Non-active members
- Anyone who could benefit from ‘view only’ BART permissions e.g. Council emergency managers, principals of schools, Police at your local station, your wife, husband or partner, Fund raising members, Support members, etc.
It’s entirely up to your BART administrator/s following the direction of your Captain, Management Team or Controller as to who is granted access to any class of BART membership. The cap-code messages and the type of message (eg Alerts only) are also controlled by the BART Administrator/s.
Observers, as well as appliances require a valid BART membership.
You don’t need to download a separate application to use the appliance features; you can use your standard BART app for either iOS, Android or Windows Phone.
Just simply log into the BART application using your ‘appliance’ membership type, and you will see a specialised appliance interface.
API licenses are used for anything that programmatically utilises the BART system. These might be CAD systems, or for automatically forwarding on broadcasts to specific groups.
