3tc’s MODAS Incident Command solution was demonstrated for use on Primetech’s MultiNet Integrated Incident Communications System at the Primetech stand, at ESS 2018. These systems allows dynamic operational and risk-critical information to be made available where it is needed, when it is needed, for everyone who needs it.

MultiNet is being combined with 3tc’s MODAS Incident Command Solution to support improved decision making, giving commanders the power to optimise the deployment of single and multi-agency assets and to monitor performance.

In partnership with 3tc’s MODAS Incident Command solution, MultiNet allows dynamic operational and risk-critical information to be made available where it is needed, when it is needed, for everyone who needs it. MODAS Incident Command provides a simple, intuitive tool for Incident Commanders and Operational Officers to view and manage a range of information streams through a straightforward map-based interface. These systems will be on display at the Primetech stand at the Emergency Services Show, stand G13.

Primetech has also introduced a new, high-spec body-worn video camera (WCCTV Connect) to its MultiNet portfolio. The body-worn camera offered by Primetech is an award-winning UK-manufactured camera, offering live transmission of video (Ka, Ku and X-Band through one receiver), audio, real-time alerts and GPS information via 3G/LTE and COFDM Mesh connectivity. It is the perfect system for integration into the MultiNet Communications system.

Primetech goes green to support ultra-low emissions fleets, green cities goals

Primetech is in discussion with a number of Fire and Rescue Services and companies in order to help them meet their ultra-low emissions fleet targets, by offering lighter weight and greener vehicles, platforms and systems.

Primetech, the leading systems integrator, communications and fire fighting technology developer, is proud to announce a number of pioneering and industry-leading initiatives which will support the development of ultra-low emissions fleets, building on its existing commitment to lighter, faster and more effective firefighting and support systems. 

The BMW X1 electric powered vehicle is one of a number of different ultra low emissions, initial response platforms being trialled. Water can be carried in on-board tanks and sustained through hydrant supply.

Moving to a range of greener vehicles will help reduce the emergency service contribution to air pollution and global warming.

Managing Director Henry Walker says,  ‘We are dedicated to working to help support the development of ultra-low emissions fleets and our UK cities’ green objectives, in line with the Government’s initiative to reduce emissions and pollution as much as possible’.

Primetech’s EasyTrac mats help Derian House hospice save £5000

Derian 2

Weighing just 5kg per mat, the 600 mm wide, 70mm thick Extra Strong mats can easily carry loads of up to 16 tonnes and were very well suited to preventing large vehicles from damaging the lawns.

Primetech’s EasyTrac mobility mats, which can provide improved wet weather and damp ground access for vehicles of all sizes, have been used recently to help a charity maximise its fund raising efforts by avoiding losing a bond deposit for a major charity event.

Derian House, a hospice for children and young people based in Chorley, Lancashire was able to protect its ground damages bond of £5000 by ensuring it accrued no financial penalties at a major charity fundraising event held in November.

The Winter Sparkle Spectacular, held at Astley Park, Chorley is a regular and important source of income for the charity, which requires almost  £4million per year to fund its valuable work supporting children and families at times of great stress. A large number of vehicles, some quite large, were required to support the event. These included a mini fairground (Helter Skelter, Carousel, Bungee trampoline, Snow-globe) plus a variety of catering trailers.
