Your eDispatches administrator can provide streams in the vicinity of your region from other eDispatches feeds. These feeds can be made available for Android and iPhone users in the App. The streams will appear in the streaming area of the app as "Nearby Streams". Administrators have the ability to select a maximum of 5 nearby streams for the account. Recipients associated with a sub-account may also receive an additional 5 nearby streams. This feature is useful to monitor large events close you your proximity to give you a heads up that your department may be dispatched. Not all clients utilize streaming and they may not appear in the list if they do not have an active feed.
