First Responders AVL Solution (EMS and Enforcement)
First responders need to be confident that all critical equipment is on board, while logistics and operations teams need to ensure these valued assets don’t get lost.
Emergency, paramedic and enforcement services need to act on a moment’s notice in order to save lives. Quick and accurate decisions are required to reduce emergency response times. Responders need to be confident that all critical equipment is on board, while logistics and operations teams need to ensure these valued assets don’t get lost. Further to this, fleets, assets and costs also need to be monitored and managed by a first responders AVL solution while adhering to government regulations.
SkyHawk’s first responders AVL solution integrates 24/7 connectivity with sensors for lights, sirens, driver ID, and tags for asset tracking. ConnectAnywhere web-based tracking software provides real-time fleet monitoring (on route and available for dispatch), high ensures proper equipment is on each vehicle and flags whether equipment has been left behind.
The first responders AVL solution focuses on improving worker safety and communication via real-time input alerts and WiFi connectivity. It’s also used to ensure patrol routes have been completed and identifies available officers and vehicles. Reports are used for predictive maintenance, and to optimize fleet usage and longevity.
