One of the most rewarding aspects of working here at US Digital Designs is seeing how our fire alerting system technology has so many lifesaving applications across a range of towns, cities and municipalities throughout the world.
Dave Zittlow, the manager of Fond du Lac’s Information Technology Department, commented that the city has long been investigating ways to improve response times for its local fire department.
He said that involved selecting and installing a new fire alerting system, in an effort to improve the time between the incoming 911 calls and the time that fire and emergency crews arrive on the scene.
Zittlow explained that the project involves putting infrastructure in place that gets fire stations information as quickly as possible, but with a system that also has the ability to deliver updates to crews en route to a call.
Enter the Phoenix G2 Fire Alerting System!
Zittlow says that with installation well underway, they currently are getting to the testing phase of the project.
USDD’s local partner in the implementation of the new system is General Communications, one of Wisconsin’s largest two-way radio dealers. The company’s expertise in wireless communications systems was a key point in their selection.
