Communication Solutions for Fire Services and EMS

End-To-End EMS and Fire Communications Made Easy

As your trusted partner, ERS Wireless helps EMS and Fire Departments implement powerful communications systems that provide your entire team with real-time, actionable intelligence. We help first responders connect in the moments that matter.

EMS and Fire Solutions

From the initial 9-1-1 call, to dispatch and alerting, through powerful fireground capabilities, you receive a unified, end-to-end solution for every part of your mission. With seamless technology supporting your personnel every step of the way, you can ensure better outcomes, and a safer, faster response.

In an emergency, there are many unpredictable variables in play. Don’t let your communication device be one of them. The Advanced Fire Suite integrates APX™ mission-critical two-way radios and accessories so first responders can trust the most reliable communications possible.

Over the course of Motorola Solutions' history, it has come to understand how firefighters and EMTs work and their unique communication needs. That’s why APX radios are specifically designed for the fireground, combining sophisticated technology with incredible toughness. These radios are meant to perform in the most extreme environments, with specially engineered form-factors, extra-large controls and displays for use with heavy-duty gloves, and features like Voice Announcement that allow you to operate radios in a zero-visibility smoke-filled room.

P25 certified and available with single and all-band capability, APX devices empower you to share information seamlessly across your team and with other responding agencies. With integrated Bluetooth, APX is compatible out-of-the-box with a large selection of wireless accessories including the leading in-mask respirator mics.

ERS Wireless recommends the following APX Series of Radios for Fire and EMS:
APX900, APX6000XE, APX6500, APX8000XE and APX8500

Firefighters and EMS professionals play a large role on the frontlines of public safety. Many agencies are exploring video technologies such as in-car dash cams, body-worn cameras, and even drones. They’re implementing these technologies to help enhance training initiatives, on-scene documentation, and in-car incidents, as well as improving overall safety for firefighters and paramedics.

ERS Wireless can help you implement in-field video solutions that provide many benefits:

  • IN-CAR VIDEO SOLUTIONS:
    • Accident Liability
    • On-Scene Incident Video Documentation
    • Training
  • BODY- WORN CAMERA SOLUTIONS:
    • Liability Protection
    • Incident Documentation Accuracy
    • Harassment Deterrent/Documentation
    • Training

Motorola’s broadband push-to-talk (PTT) solutions empower every member of the response team across the continuum of care to instantly connect with each other, or with specific work groups via PTT. Applications like WAVE and their back-end integration into LMR networks eliminate boundaries and deliver real-time voice and data securely over any network using any device, including two-way radios, smartphones, laptops, tablets, rugged handhelds and landlines. Members of your emergency medical team can use devices they already have and networks to which they already subscribe to have PTT connectivity between their teams, hospital staff, specialty doctors and other individuals, both inside and outside your radio communication system.

Fire Software Suite
Today, emergency calls can take many forms. The Advanced Fire Suite includes Vesta and CallWorks, NG9-1-1 capable call-taking solutions that can receive 9-1-1 calls and collect critical incident data from the caller either over voice or through many other media formats. The software then seamlessly shares it with our PremierOne and Spillman FLEX dispatch software in a single workfl­ow to notify the appropriate first responders. These natively integrated dispatch systems efficiently and accurately capture call information and help coordinate the fastest, most prepared response possible when every second counts.

Empower your dispatchers with faster coordination tools and enhanced intelligence sourced directly from call handling software, so they can better inform and support personnel in the field. By leveraging Motorola Solutions console solutions, the Advanced Fire Suite offers software-based access to all LMR talkgroups and users from one desk, so you can easily relay mission-critical communications to the right personnel. You can also use the console solution to leverage the full potential and capabilities of your P25 network by using more applications such as logging and third-party add-ons, all through one user interface.

EMS Software Suite
EMS first responders in the field want the ability to get information without the need to switch between multiple applications. Motorola Solutions’ CommandCentral Aware Mapping and Location solution is a cloud-based mobile application that enables you to deliver relevant information to EMS personnel in the ambulance or on scene, no matter what smart device or network they’re using. It gathers and organizes contextual information from multiple databases and enables you to organize and map the data. Using its layer approach, you can have a single view of an incident that shows the location of people, resources, events, alerts and developing situations, fostering better decision-making, streamlining multi-agency collaboration and improving patient outcomes.

In today’s world, it is a necessity that emergency medical responders have mobile access to high priority LTE broadband data in addition to their P25 radio. This enables the team to leverage telemedicine technology, provide and receive urgent updates from dispatch and command and control, and have interoperable push-to-talk capability. Motorola’s LEX L11 mission-critical broadband device is designed to help you take maximum advantage of multimedia-rich applications that provide efficient and collaborative mission support enroute to the site, on-scene and during transport to the hospital or trauma center. With features like built-in PTT and emergency buttons, extreme durability, inherent security protocol, long-lasting battery capacity, and being FirstNet Ready™, the LEX L11 is built for public safety. The LEX L11 can also pair directly to your APX radio over mission-critical Bluetooth, enabling the LEX L11 to effectively become an LTE-enabled PTT accessory to your APX radio.
