Responders can put their mobile app on Fixed Location mode, meaning their mobile phone does not use GPS to report theirs location. It only reports the static address to the Dispatcher.

Note: Fixed Location is a permission that must be granted to the responder by the organization's administrator.

Important: Fixed location saves battery usage on the mobile phone, but if a responder chooses to report a fixed location, the dispatch operator does not see them as available for dispatch to incidents that occur in any other location. Effectively, this means such a responder appear as dispatchable only at that fixed address.

When Fixed Location is on, the Location icon changes from green to blue. You can cancel the fixed location by tapping on Cancel Fixed Location.
