Fire and Rescue Departments

Fire and Rescue Communications


Advances within information, device, and networking technologies are enabling emergency response agencies to connect with their people, equipment, and systems in real-time. Today's emergency responders need the ability to quickly and securely access and share information in the field. Data from ambulances, firetrucks, and other emergency response vehicles can be securely linked with command and control systems that provide information your rescue teams need to make informed decisions while in the field and on-scene.

Mobile Command Center Connectivity for Fire and Rescue Departments

Mobile Command

Many fire departments strategically deploy mobile command vehicles to areas and events in need of high levels of resource coordination. These vehicles are rarely deployed for routine operations, most commonly utilized when large scale efforts (like forest fires) are required. Maintaining reliable communications is vital during high stress situations where the ability to connect personnel, equipment, and internal command is critical.

Enterprise Branch Connectivity for Fire and Rescue Stations

Station Communications

Your fire stations and EMS depots are the backbone of your operations. When they lose connectivity, your command staff and field teams lose access to real-time information critical to their safety. We engineer branch connectivity solutions that ensure your HQ and satellite stations maintain continuous connectivity even if your primary T1 lines go down, or when network congestion leads to slowdowns that put your people and the public in jeopardy.

5G and Wi-Fi 6 Connectivity for Firefighting Equipment

Equipment Networking

With enhanced 5G connectivity, fire departments and their operations can enter a new era of technological firefighting innovation. Fire crews and remote operators can connect with new remote controlled firefighting drones and robots to minimize personnel exposure to hazardous conditions. Our collection of 5G and Wi-Fi 6 capable routers and wide band vehicle antennas give signal strength and Wi-Fi coverage a reliable and measurable boost.

Portable Networking Solutions for Fire and Rescue Agencies

Portable Networking

When a natural or manmade disaster occurs, many fire and rescue agencies are responsible for deploying response teams throughout their districts. When possible, they accept and coordinate the activities of volunteers as well as the first responders teams directly under their command. They need a way to keep everyone connected throughout every minute to help save lives and city infrastructure. Our portable networking devices can help.

First Responder Networks for Fire and Rescue Agencies

First Responder Networks

Our nations fire, rescue, and EMS agencies need dedicated broadband communications networks that provide expanded coverage and capacity over and above what standard public cellular networks can provide. Through our partnerships with major cellular carriers, USAT can provide and provision devices for use on LTE networks built with public safety in mind like AT&T FirstNet, Verizon Frontline, and T-Mobile's Connecting Heroes.
