Nashville enhances safety for citizens and tourists through Smart Dispatch Integration
Smart Dispatch Integration Keeps The Music City In Tune
Nashville is proud to be known as Music City, drawing tourists from nearby regions and from destinations around the world to hear live music. Nashville's metro area is the largest in the state. The Nashville Emergency Communications Center is located in Metropolitan Nashville Davidson County, which encompasses 533 square miles. With such a wide area to cover geographically, and so many citizens and tourists in the area each day, Nashville needs to take a specialized approach to emergency management.
Nashville’s role as a center for industry, tourism, and entertainment creates a need for a bigger and more comprehensive dispatch system that can assist with a wide variety of calls and situations.
In 2010, the Metro Nashville ECC became
the first to implement PremierOne Computer Aided Dispatch enabling multiple agencies including fire/emergency medical services (EMS) and Office of Emergency Management (OEM) agencies to be serviced by a single dispatch and response center.
After successfully implementing the smart dispatch solution, Metro Nashville ECC has allowed dispatchers and first responders to collaborate effectively by improving response time and outcomes, easily locating and tracking agency resources and communicating clearly and accurately.
Weese from Nashville'ss IT Department appreciates new enhancements that allow him to make small custom updates. Also, implementing these custom features agency wide by making universal changes to the system is easy. In a busy department like Nashville, this is a time-saver for the IT department and the dispatchers get to working with the most up-to-date features possible.
Workflow integration increases communication between agencies
There are a number of features that help integrated workflow in day-to-day operations. For example, the PremierOne system integrates fully with Motorola Solutions radio systems, currently being used by Nashville. As new software updates are released, they are transmitted within seconds, allowing real-time guidance for unit moveups. Download the case study to learn more.
