Multitone Electronics plc, a specialist in the design, manufacture and implementation of integrated communication systems, will premiere its new Appear Crew and Ambulance apps for emergency teams and first responders, on stand J7 at the BAPCO 2018 conference and exhibition.
Appear Crew mobile app
Appear Crew uses Multitone’s highly successful Appear mobile platform, to assist emergency crews with reliable and secure messaging. As a complement to a pager, the Appear Crew app registers a response from each crew member and tracks their progress to their station from whichever location they are at. The system can also be used to track the movement of the individual team members, right to the fire station, showing locations on a map. This allows the Command and Control team to ensure everyone is accounted for when required.
Multitone’s Emergency Services Major Accounts Manager, Peter Eborall states: “We anticipate great interest and demand for our Appear Crew app, which we developed in close collaboration with fire and rescue services. It has been extensively trialled and rigorously tested, to ensure it can be relied upon to provide the essential support needed to save lives.” Eborall adds, “In addition to fire and rescue crews, Appear Crew is ideally suited to meet the exacting communications requirements of RNLI and Coastguard emergency teams.”
Ambulance app for emergency services
Also, on stand J7 is Multitone’s new Ambulance app, which has been designed specifically to assist and co-ordinate teams, from full-time paramedics to Community First Responders. “Based upon our Appear Lite solution, the Ambulance app provides highly reliable contact, with proof-of-delivery for a proven audit trail,” adds Eborall. “The app is highly secure, preventing sensitive information being removed or screenshots being taken, to ensure confidentiality at all time.”
The Ambulance app sends an automatic acknowledgement when the recipient receives the message, so the Command and Control team know it has been read. The app features a clear and simple-to-use interface that is easy to use and simple to read, whilst working with patients or out in the community.
