LEXINGTON, S.C., Aug. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avtec LLC, Critical Tech Solutions and Loudon County E-911 in Tennessee, have completed a major upgrade to their dispatch communication system, adding redundancy and regional interoperability to the county’s primary public safety answering point (PSAP).
After a series of devastating storms in June, only 50% of Loudon County’s E-911 center was functional, forcing the center to expedite a major upgrade. In less than five weeks, the new Avtec Scout™ EX dispatch solution was built and installed, enabling the center to return to normal operations.
The new dispatch communication system includes:
“Avtec custom-built the new system using screen configurations we sent,” said Jennifer White, director of Loudon County E-911 as well as the former chair and a current member of Tennessee’s Emergency Communications Board, which oversees all 101 Emergency Communications Districts in the state. “Because of this, our dispatchers were using the system comfortably within 10 minutes. Having the backing and support of the combined Avtec and Motorola Solutions teams was another important factor in our decision. Knowing we now have service and support redundancy is a big deal for us.”
“We are proud to have dependable partners like Critical Tech Solutions,” said Johnny Goforth, regional sales manager, Avtec. “Loudon County will have greater peace of mind knowing they can count on both the premier support and responsiveness of our channel partners as well as experts from Avtec and Motorola Solutions to quickly provide technical support for any issue impacting their dispatch operations.”
