In addition to its new NG9-1-1 communications capabilities, counties within the northern tier are now capable of providing transport and connectivity for other systems such as computer-aided dispatch, graphical information systems, interoperable radio and emergency management, as well as interfacing with a statewide emergency services IP network (ESInet).
McAllister says they are getting inquiries from other counties that may be interested in joining.
"We are honored to be involved in the project, along with the team at MCM Consulting Group, Inc., and we are confident that our VESTA®/Sentinel® system fully supports these Pennsylvania counties' good stewardship of taxpayer dollars and continued public safety efforts," said Pavick.
