New fire dispatching line of products announced by Priority Dispatch Corp.
National Academies of Emergency Dispatch member across the world submitted their proposals for change and many of these changes represent significant improvements.
Priority Dispatch Corp. (PDC) is pleased to announce a new version of its fire dispatching line of products, training, and services. This version update includes the gold standard ProQA® dispatching software, cardset, and support products. All of the updated products and training incorporate the newly released National Academies of Emergency Dispatch (NAED) v5 Fire Priority Dispatch System (FPDS ) protocol. This protocol represents the most up-to-date, thorough, and essential fire dispatching protocol available and teamed up with PDC products and training is a huge leap forward for 9-1-1 communications centers.
FPDS v5 products will ship immediately to all current FPDS Extended Service Plan users and are available to new clients.
FPDS v5 protocol highlights include:
"As the Academy completed its fire protocol revisions, PDC was there to rapidly incorporate the changes into the version 5 release of cardsets, ProQA software, and training and support products," said Jay Dornseif, PDC fire consultant. "This new version incorporates faster dispatch points, new Pre-Arrival Instructions, and new protocols with more than 40 new descriptors, allowing agencies to continue dispatching the right resources at the right time. The wait for this phenomenal product is over."
"FPDS v5 is by far the most extensive revision to our fire protocol in the last six years," said NAED Technical Editor Benjamin H. Rose. "A huge effort has been made to speed up dispatch, increase safety, and make the protocol more user-friendly. NAED member users in 300 centers worldwide submitted more than 200 proposals for change and many of these changes represent significant improvements to this new version of the fire protocol. It's exciting to watch as the NAED responds to changing fire standards, research, and technology, and to be part of the process that creates meaningful change for fire dispatch services and the public they serve."
