Fire Department Litigation Exposure Solution
How do you KNOW you are getting the call?
Our fire department friends know all about ISO ratings and NFPA standards. For the benefit of those who don't know so much about such things, let us just say that the lower the rating, the better the potential for reduced property insurance rates. ISO and NFPA compliance is also an essential element for litigation avoidance!
We don't like to think about such things, but the fact is that there are thousands of lawyers out there specializing in negligence claims. If someone dies, or is seriously injured, or there is major property damage, and you are late making the call (or don't make it at all), THAT is just what they are waiting for. Knowledge of a problem, and not doing anything about it is classed as negligence and THAT can be a problem!
Falcon Wireless is in the "time and money" business, or more specifically reducing the time required to respond to an emergency and to save money for those providing and receiving services. We do this by providing the infrastructure to quickly alert personnel (in particular volunteer personnel) and to provide the ability for dispatch to more efficiently communicate with first responders, incident commanders, and support services.
We have a number of products available to help you get those lower ISO ratings and reduce litigation exposure. The first is known as an InstalertR, (pronounced insta-lerter) exclusively offered by Falcon Wireless.
As you will note in the picture at the left, it is relatively small (not much larger than a desk calculator), easy to use (three lights and buttons). What it does is to INSTANTLY tell a dispatch operator if (a) the control radio at dispatch is not transmitting or (b) if an associated repeater is not transmitting, per ISO and NFPA standards.
If you are looking for a way to get a better ISO rating and to provide better service to your community, to save lives and property, AND to stay our of court; the InstalertR is a simple and efficient solution. It's available in either VHF or UHF and is compatible with all analog and digital radio systems including DMR (MotoTRBO), NXDN (ICOM and Kenwood), and P25 (both Phase 1 and Phase 2. This is the only product of it's type and it's only $1,549! For a demonstration, give us a call at 800.489.2611. In the meantime, additional information is available by going to Info4u.us/InstaLertR.
