Original Press Release:
Locution Systems, Inc. Introduces New Zoned Dispatching System for Multi-unit Fire Stations
CADVoice(R) ZoneTracker(TM) routes 911 dispatches directly to the fire or EMS unit being dispatched; allows other units to sleep through the night
GOLDEN, Colo., Aug. 6 /-- Locution Systems, Inc., a provider of advanced, automated public safety dispatching, zoned dispatching, and fire station alerting and control technology, today introduced an updated version of CADVoice(R) ZoneTracker(TM) -- a zoned dispatching and alerting system designed for fire stations with more than one fire or EMS crew. Locution Systems unveiled the new zoned dispatching & alerting system while attending the 2007 Association of Public Safety Communications (APCO) conference and expo in Baltimore in August 2007. The updated CADVoice(R) ZoneTracker(TM) system is available immediately.
ZoneTracker(TM) works in conjunction with CADVoice(R) Fire Station -- Locution Systems' flagship fire station alerting system. The ZoneTracker(TM) software module is priced at $1,995 per fire station for up to 30 zones. The larger Station ZoneTracker(TM) touch screen sells for $2,299; the Dorm ZoneTracker(TM) touch screen sells for $1,799.
Locution Systems' ZoneTracker(TM) is comprised of software developed by Locution Systems and tech-friendly touch screen hardware units that allows fire and EMS personnel to simply touch the screen and "tell" the fire station's alerting system where they are located in the station, and more important, the bunk room in which they will be sleeping. Then, when 911 calls come through in the middle of the night, CADVoice(R) ZoneTracker(TM) automatically will route dispatches, as well as lighting and tonal alerts, directly and only to the rescue crew being dispatched for the call.
This ability to route dispatches and alerts directly to the crew being dispatched allows the rest of the rescue crews in the fire station to sleep through the night, and helps mitigate the negative physical and mental effects of sleep deprivation. An added plus: CADVoice(R) ZoneTracker(TM) also helps speed response times to fires and medical emergencies by more precisely routing 911 dispatches to the crews designated to respond to the emergency.
