PSAP CAD-to-CAD Interoperability
 
What it Does: FirstResponse911 dispatcher software is an ideal tool for emergency medical dispatch centers, and provides state-of-the-art solutions for CAD-to-CAD interface between two or more PSAPs. 

The Need: The majority of PSAPs share information with other PSAPs via telephone line or radio. Using the telephone to exchange critical response information is time consuming, cumbersome, and prone to human error (i.e., forgetting to relay critical scene information or forgetting to transfer a call). Human error aside, emergency medical dispatch centers relying on traditional radio use alone may miss important information due to limited multi-agency frequency issues or heavy radio traffic. FirstResponse911 advanced dispatcher software makes the organization and transfer of CAD information between PSAPS more efficient, resulting in improved response times.

Vision: “Imagine having all your area PSAPs talking and sharing real-time information with each other. Imagine having call information automatically transferred to other PSAPs. Imagine always being aware of local and mutual aid area incidents. Imagine what this will do to improve multi-agency communication and response to multi-casualty, HazMat, and other large scale incidents between police, fire, and EMS responders.”
