L.A. fire dispatch upgrade contract goes to Durham Communications
Durham Communications, Mesa, Ariz., has won a contract to upgrade to the Los Angeles Fire Department’s aging dispatch systems.
The $1.1 million project, which began four weeks ago, is slated for completion during the first quarter of 2003.
The Los Angeles upgrade includes an OrbaNET T-5 communications control dispatch console system with 15 dispatch positions and a ComLog digital voice logging recorder from by Montreal-based CVDS. The T-5 system is digital, which makes it reliable and scalable to handle radio, telephone and network resources, a statement from the company reads. The ComLog recorder is a PC-to-DVD-based digital recording system for telephone and radio lines.
“We were chosen to do this installation partially because of the extraordinary skill level required to seamlessly integrate the new equipment with existing systems. We demonstrate a willingness to be flexible and responsive, and to provide exactly what the customer requires,” said John Durham, the company’s president.
Among its Arizona customers, Durham Communications numbers the city governments of Peoria and Tempe, and the Phoenix Fire Department.
