This week, three members of US Digital Designs’ management team are Down Under in Australia to exhibit at APCO Australasia and meet with prospective fire station alerting customers in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne.
This is the USDD team’s first time exhibiting at APCO Australasia. (For those who do not know, APCO stands for the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials).
The 11th Annual Conference and Exhibition — ‘Public Safety: Challenging People, Technology and Process — will be held at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre on 29 April – 1 May 2014.
Our USDD team will showcase our innovative Phoenix G2 Fire Station Alerting System at booths five and six, and feature our newest product, the FSA Mobile App. This mobile application is the first-ever fire alerting application that integrates with a comprehensive fire station alerting system (i.e., the Phoenix G2 system). The FSA Mobile App is especially helpful to alert reserve and volunteer firefighters who are not physically located at a fire station when a fire or emergency incident occurs.
