FIRE & RESCUE - Our reputation for innovative and intuitive technology means we have become the partner of choice

For the past two decades, we have been working closely with the UK’s Fire & Rescue services to provide a full operational picture of everything on the incident ground.

With The UK and Global first responder sectors facing unprecedented pressures to implement lessons learned and recommendations at a local and national level, the requirement for reliable communications, situational awareness and emerging technologies such as drones, body worn cameras and dynamic incident management platforms are growing. Therefore, digital adoption is becoming a prerequisite to improve public safety, response and decision making.

Today, we are combining Hybrid Technology solutions to underpin first responder applications and improve the reliability of data transfer across any type of deployment.

Our customers include West Midlands Fire, Scottish Fire, Hampshire, Mid & West Wales, Norfolk, Notts and many more across the UK and Australia

CONNECTED VEHICLES

‘Connectivity everywhere’

Our team are supporting fully integrated Command and Control, Fire Appliances and Specialist Vehicles with scalable and reliable connectivity solutions.

The ability to seamlessly receive and share real-time data and operational information to improve decision making and operational outcomes has become even more critical. As has the availability of a network infrastructure across any environment.

At Excelerate, we work closely with our customers to understand their operational challenge.

As a result, we have developed some of the most resilient, robust solutions to support major incident response, operational resilience, and emergency planning.

CUSTOMER USE CASE

Delivering a totally scalable and flexible 'connected fleet' solution for Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service

MAWWFRS had to obtain a solution to overcome daily, common challenges, which would ultimately be underpinned by technology to vastly improve situational awareness and be able to reliably track personnel – including location within a building or when deployed at a whole host of incidents – from industrial and forest fires through to water rescue operations.

Recent post-incident enquiries had focused on weaknesses in individual and multi-agency communications. And the ability to seamlessly receive and share real-time data and operational information to support decision-making has become even more critical.
What was severely lacking, was the availability of a network infrastructure within these environments to enable the instantaneous live feed, relay and sharing of data – including live voice and video.
A further challenge to overcome was the ability to take the technology, and the network infrastructure, ‘beyond the vehicle’. In essence, MAWWFRS required a non-fixed and flexible ‘connectivity anywhere’ solution to be able to be deployed anywhere within the incident ground.
In delivering a connected fleet solution of 53 vehicles, some of the capabilities now being deployed – and indeed with other services – include fully connected command support units, pumping, aerial and specialist appliances, officers’ cars, SRT water response vehicles, turntable ladders and additional support vehicles.
The holistic connected solution enables emergency services to be fully integrated across all vehicles, regardless of location across the incident ground with real-time transfer of data, including live video feed.
