The City of Torrance, California will deploy Locution Systems PrimeAlert™ IP-based Fire Station Alerting and Radio-based Fire Station Alerting.  In addition to IP and Radio voice alerting, Locution’s PrimeAlert™ station alerting system also will provide text alerts to Torrance emergency personnel via their smart devices (e.g. smartphones and mobile computers).  Locution Systems will be providing the Torrance Fire Department with two different voice alerting technologies for its automated 9-1-1 voice alerting:  the Complete Human Voice technology (the clearest, most understandable automated 9-1-1 voice alerting on the market today that comes factory-delivered to meet each fire department’s specifications) and Approximated Human Voice technology (a pliable, trainable 9-1-1 alerting voice that allows an unlimited number of sound combinations to automatically vocalize 9-1-1 dispatches to first responders.

The City of Torrance, California has six fire stations, and uses the Spillman Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system in its emergency communications center. 

Torrance, California fire stations also will be outfitted with a variety of fire station alerting technologies, including:

  • PrimeAlert™ LED Reader Boards (will display the dispatch information visually as the 911 dispatch information is being vocalized to first responders via the PrimeAlert™ system)
  • PrimeAlert™ Response Timers  (visual displays located in the fire station’s apparatus bay that will immediately start counting up once the 911 dispatch arrives at the fire station to provide immediate feedback to first responders on their response times)
  • PrimeAlert™ Acknowledgement Buttons (a button located in the apparatus bay of the fire station that responders can push to indicate they have received the dispatch and are responding, with the acknowledgement forwarded back to the 911 emergency communications center).
