Dorset & Wiltshire Fire Service
In Dorset and Wil our recent work with Dorset & Wiltshire Fire Service (DWfire) Orion tags have been integrated into two third party devices, automist PPS and smoke alarms. These Orion solutions have enabled DWfire to rapidly deploy personal protection systems for vulnerable individuals within the local community. The ability to receive instant alerts when the community need immediate assistance has already helped DWfire improve their service, reduce injury and save lives. We also attached GPS tags to DWfire’s helmets and high value assets and installed 3G mobile gateways onto their appliances. Orion is enabling DWfire to track individual key personnel offering due care and diligence when on a call out, streamlining Firefighters’ activities and enabling location by rank at the scene of an incident. The benefits of tracking fire officers whilst at an incident are clear, Orion will give the fire service the ability to have an overall view of any incident attended, monitoring all tagged individuals wherever they are at the scene. After the testing stage at DWfire, we embarked on a county-wide roll out of Orion infrastructure which has resulted in a complete Orion network installation on every Fire Station within the Dorset and Wiltshire borders. We would like to see other Fire Stations and communities benefit from Orion Data Network asset tracking and asset security solutions in the same way.
