The PURVIS Fire Station Alerting SystemTM

Alerting Solutions at the 911 Dispatch or Communications Center

The PURVIS Fire Station Alerting System™ interfaces seamlessly with computer-aided dispatch (CAD) systems to fully automate the entire alerting process from a dispatch center to fire stations and remote personnel. Voice communication does not require the CAD operator to speak, instead, the system receives data signals from dispatch and provides nearly instantaneous, automated dispatching to fire and EMS personnel over multiple channels. Audible announcements are also delivered via radio to responding units in the field.

The PURVIS FSAS uses proven technology to convert dispatch data to natural-sounding speech that is clear and easily understood. Automated announcements can be automatically broadcast over an existing radio network and simultaneously delivered to specific fire stations needed for a call. Key features include:

  • Instantaneous delivery of incident notifications
  • Automated Text-to-Speech technology that allows system administrators to quickly and easily modify pronunciations
  • Integration with VHF, UHF, 700MHz, 800MHz, and P25 radio systems to provide automated voice, analog tones, digital tones and data transmission via radio
  • Messaging and manual back-up alerting capabilities
  • Built-in system management and monitoring
  • High-availability design and implementation

Alerting Solutions for Radio Communications

The PURVIS Fire Station Alerting System™ integrates first responders into the alerting process via multiple channels, including radio and pager, cell phone, and/or smartphone leveraging voice, text, and data. When it comes to radio communications specifically, our system can support as many channels or talk groups as your station or department currently uses or requires.

A radio interface allows the PURVIS FSAS to communicate with your radio system for redundant and on-air dispatching purposes. The PURVIS FSAS enhances radio communications via:

  • Automated text-to-speech communications that can be multicast over the existing voice network
  • Intelligent configuration that directs notifications to remote personnel who need them based on their location, availability, time of day, and the type of incident

PURVIS has three options for connecting the FSAS with radio systems:

  • Console Interface
  • Radio Interface Unit
  • Gateway Interface
