Locution Systems to Provide Fire Station Alerting System to Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base

Locution Systems, Inc., the provider of the Locution Systems Fire Station Alerting (FSA) System for fire and EMS departments, has been commissioned to provide its FSA system to the Rickenbacker Air National Guard (ANG) Base.  The Rickenbacker ANG Base will implement Locution Systems’ FSA System with enhanced Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) capabilities.  This ARFF-enhanced version allows both dispatches and “crash phone” audio from Rickenbacker’s control tower to be distributed with the fire station.  Locution Systems’ FSA is controlled by distributed dispatch consoles over an IP network.

In addition, Rickenbacker ANG is implementing Locution Systems’ ZoneTracker™ - which allows for zoned fire station alerting and automated dispatching.  With zoned fire station alerting and automated 9-1-1 dispatching, Locution Systems ZoneTracker™ precisely routes dispatch information, control tower information, and fire station alerting to specific responding units, including specific dorm rooms where responders are sleeping.  This allows other responders not being dispatched to sleep through the night, and it minimizes sleep deprivation for first responders.  (Medical research shows that sleep deprivation has as many negative physical and emotional effects as chronic stress.)

Locution Systems’ Fire Station Alerting Systems automatically will generate an alert tone, and then announce the dispatch information via a clear, accent-neutral digital computer voice at the Rickenbacker ANG base fire station.  In addition, the Rickenbacker ANG Base CADVoice® deployment will include installation of a specialized fire station sound system; and LCD monitors which will visually display the 9-1-1 dispatch information being vocalized by the CADVoice® system.

The chief reasons fire & EMS departments implement Locution Systems’ automated dispatching & fire station alerting system are three-fold:

1)  Faster Response Times  (CADVoice® helps speed up response times to fires and  medical emergencies.)

2)  Reduced Stress for 9-1-1 Dispatchers  (CADVoice® reduces stress for the 9-1-1 dispatching staff by allowing the current staff to handle more call volume.)

3)  Reduced Stress For First Responders  (Locution Systems’ array of modular fire station alerting technologies can reduce stress and sleep deprivation for first responders.)
