SIOUX CITY FIRE RESCUE HAS COMPLETED TESTING AND FULLY IMPLEMENTED A NEW RADIO DISPATCH SYSTEM.

AS KSCJ NEWS FIRST REPORTED TWO WEEKS AGO, THE AUTOMATED VOICE DISPATCH SHOULD RESULT IN FASTER RESPONSES FOR FIRE RESCUE AND AMBULANCE CALLS:

OC……..9TH STREET. ;04

CITY FIRE MARSHALL MARK AESOPH SAYS THAT AUTOMATED VOICE WILL ALERT THE RESPONDING UNIT AS THE DISPATCHER TAKING THE 9-1-1 CALL TYPES IN THE INFORMATION:

OC……….WITH THE PERSON. ;17

AESOPH SAYS THE VOICE ALSO MAKES IT EASIER FOR RESPONDERS TO UNDERSTAND THE DISPATCHES:

OC…………VERY READILY. :14

THE NEW $272,000 PHOENIX G2 STATION ALERTING SYSTEM IS FUNDED THROUGH THE 9-1-1 SURCHARGE THAT IS COLLECTED MONTHLY FROM PHONE USERS.

IT’S REPLACING A VHF PAGING SYSTEM THAT WAS NO LONGER SERVICEABLE DUE TO ITS AGE.
