Attendees to Fire-Rescue International in Dallas, Texas next week are invited to learn more about how smart city technology solutions can help public safety crews respond faster and arrive on the scene safely.
More than 3,100 cities around the world trust Opticom traffic signal priority control from Global Traffic Technologies, LLC (GTT) to deliver smarter, safer vehicle movement. As emergency responders look to the future, Opticom should be part of the plan to help protect the communities they serve.
“The public safety landscape continues to evolve and become more connected,” GTT’s pre-sales engineer Josh Lehman said. “In particular, connecting vehicles to infrastructure and analysing the data generated by those interactions can result in major operational improvements.”
The Fire-Rescue International (FRI) event – which takes place at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, August 8-11 – is the annual conference and expo of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. FRI has a 140-year history of providing senior-level leadership training to fire chiefs, and attracts the world’s leading experts in the first responder community.
At the event, attendees can learn about how the market-leading Opticom pre-emption systems are evolving to solve new problems for first responders. For more than 50 years, Opticom has been giving green lights to public safety vehicles. Preemption technology has been shown to improve response times by up to 25 percent reduce intersection crash rates by up to 70 percent, according to Federal Highway Administration studies.
Lehman said that GTT is continuing to innovate, introducing new technologies and concepts to even further improve operations for emergency responders and traffic managers.
“Opticom Analytics is a software tool which provides details about system performance, revealing any areas where adjustments could be made to provide a faster, safer response,” he said. “And PCaaS – Priority Control as a Service – is a subscription offering, which means communities are offered a simplified service, with nothing to buy and nothing to maintain.”
GTT is celebrating 50 years of Opticom innovation this year. As part of the celebration, GTT is collecting memorable stories from customers who use Opticom. In return, GTT will send a 50th anniversary challenge coin. For more details and to submit your story, visit www.gtt.com/Opticom50.
Visitors to FRI can stop by GTT’s booth – 4192 – to pick up a challenge coin in person, in exchange for their story.
