THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Twin Bridge Rescue Begins eDispatches
Issue Date: May 22, 2014
CrivitzTwin Bridge Rescue Squad, Inc. announced the recent implementation of the eDispatches emergency notification system. By implementing the eDispatches system all members can now receive emergency pages and general messages via their cell phone and without carrying a pager, radio or additional device.
eDispatches receives the page from the Marinette County 9-1-1 Center and immediately forwards the page to all enrolled members. Members can choose to be notified via smartphone application, both Android and Apple, text message, phone call or any combination thereof. The page is recorded and available for replay as necessary by each member. Additionally anyone can visit the eDispatches web page and listen to any messages within the last 24 hours.
In todays fast-paced world of technology and constant communication no one ever leaves home without their cellular device. eDispatches provides a method for members to be notified of any dispatches 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year, even under those circumstances where a pager may prove to be intrusive or simply inconvenient. This technology not only serves as a backup to the current paging system but also notifies more members on a regular basis. Community safety is enhanced due to the probability of additional members responding to an emergency just because they are in the area, even though they may not be on-call.
eDispatches also resolves some of the issues created with range and coverage limitations due to narrow-banding of radio frequencies and additionally provides mass messaging capabilities to all members without intervention from dispatch.
More information on eDispatches, including the previous 24 hours call log, can be obtained by visiting their website at www. eDispatches.com.
