SeeUsAtESS183tc’s MODAS Incident Command solution will be demonstrated for use on Primetech’s MultiNet Integrated Incident Communications System at the Primetech stand, G13, at ESS 2018.

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 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’.
