FrontForce - Integrated Emergency Support
Tuesday, May 15, 2012 - 14:30

Ferranti Computer Systems was selected by the Zaventem fire brigade to supply FrontForce® for the renewal of the dispatching of their fire station. FrontForce® provides an integrated, future-proof dispatching solution for fire brigades. The integrated GIS functionality guarantees the Fastest Adequate Assistance (SAH). The system consists of modules that seamlessly work together and can be flexibly added or removed according to the evolving needs of the organization.

The Zaventem Fire Department strives to provide the most efficient and fastest quality service. The refurbishment of the station including a new dispatching with modern communication must meet these requirements. The fire station is responsible for alerting and the coordination of all fire department interventions to both citizens and industry. Hence it is required for the station to have a modern infrastructure with state of the art techniques.

The contract comprises the supply and implementation of the FrontForce® solution as well as setting up a new server room and the installation of a new ICT network and IP telephony installation.
