Saginaw County Live on PremierOne 3.1.7 CAD System to Streamline Incident Management, Enhance Officer, Citizen Safety

08:00 EST Thursday, December 05, 2013

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (Business Wire) -- Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) announces the successful completion of a new emergency communications system for Saginaw County, Michigan. The system includes the implementation of a new PremierOne™ Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) system, PremierOne Mobile application, ASTRO® 25 Radio System, MCC7500 IP Radio Console, 9-1-1 call taking and logging recorder equipment. This complete, unified incident management solution provides seamless voice and data workflows designed to help Saginaw improve response times, efficiently allocate resources and provide better information to assist first responders.

The integration of the new 9-1-1 and voice radio dispatch systems with the Michigan Public Safety Communications System (MPSCS) statewide network enables greater interoperability, coverage levels and data sharing capabilities and will allow Saginaw to realize cost savings in the maintenance of their radio infrastructure. As a result of the completion of the project, Saginaw County is able to immediately benefit from the latest technological advances and time-saving features and is well positioned to address next generation public safety demands.

KEY FACTS

  • Saginaw County 9-1-1 serves a population of approximately 200,000 and covers over 815 square miles. The 9-1-1 center manages more than 400,000 calls each year through nine dispatch positions and provides dispatch services for 17 police and 21 fire departments.
  • The new emergency communications system streamlines Saginaw's operational environment by automating dispatch workflows and data retrieval to simplify incident and resource management.
  • With the PremierOne standards-based, next generation architecture, the County now has a modular foundation to implement future technology improvements and requirements such as NG9-1-1 and multimedia communications.
  • PremierOne CAD provides Saginaw with a powerful GIS-driven incident management solution that uses Esri technology to display the pinpoint location and identity of mobile units, enabling a more efficient and coordinated response.
