911-Elert in operation
When a 911 call is placed, the regional 911
dispatch centre will relay the call via email to the appropriate Volunteer
Fire Department's 911Elert DataGate 3server (Cloud Server recommended). This may
encompass a number of small communities served by a common regional 911
DataGate Hub in the 911Elert Server automatically relays
the information to the volunteer Firefighters and/or one or more community Fire Chiefs. Alternately the Fire Station
Chief can select the groups that will be called to the Fire Hall. All alerts
are transmitted three times. The Fire Chief has the added option to send
additional text messages.
The local Fire Hall and Volunteer Firemen must be
equipped with either compatible portable radios such as Kenwood NX 5XXX series or
HYTERA Digital radios, or Smartphones that can accept Cellular Emails or Text Messages.
Datalink's 911-Elert can be installed as a stand alone system linked to a
local 911 dispatch center or as an integrated
also developed by Datalink as response to the
major wildfires now becoming a yearly event due to the warming climate.
