News : Cecil County Selects Airbus DS Communications' VESTA 9-1-1 Solution
Temecula, CA, USA, Aug 18, 2015 -- Airbus DS Communications, an entity of Airbus Defense and Space, has been selected by Cecil County Department of Emergency Services to upgrade the Maryland County's emergency call-taking system with the VESTA(R) 9-1-1 solution.
An existing Airbus DS Communications customer, Cecil County, sought to upgrade its system to make the county Next Generation 9-1-1 ready and to boost its operational capabilities. The agency completed its technology upgrade in addition to remodelling and modernizing its entire operations center.
"We are excited to introduce Cecil County public safety officials to our VESTA 9-1-1 solution to improve public safety communications for their community," said Bob Freinberg, CEO of Airbus DS Communications. "The County now has access to both a user-friendly solution and one designed with the flexibility and reliability they need to handle emergencies on any scale."
Previously, Cecil County's two call centers -- the command center and the back-up location -- were operating on different systems, making it difficult for call takers to transition between the two. With the scalability of the new VESTA 9-1-1 solution, both locations now offer the same high-quality user experience, ensuring reliability and fast response times.
"We are honored to help Cecil County lay the foundation for Next Generation 9-1-1," said Daniel Heilman, Strategic Accounts-Public Safety, Carousel Industries, the service provider for Cecil County. "As we look to the future, we're excited to plan the next step and bring integrated text-to-9-1-1 to the county."
