Itís a Different World
     More than just laying lines, interior attacks, extrication and overhaul. It’s no longer firefighter or paramedic, it’s “First Responder”. You are the nation’s new domestic army, an army that doesn’t aim to destroy but to rescue and save. No longer a fire ground or rescue scene but a battlefield. In this line of work, time has always been of the essence. Now, more than ever before, getting to the scene quickly could make all of the difference. We are here to help you achieve success.

FIRST-IN® FIRE STATION ALERTING SYSTEMS

     Recent reports suggest that “barely over a third of departments nationwide meet national standards for response time.” Given the diverse range of operations that fire/rescue departments must perform, the environment and scenes have forever changed. “In the 1970s, scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology found that at that time, people had about 17 minutes to escape before being overcome by heat and smoke. Today, the estimate is three minutes.” Bill Dedman. Deadly Delays: The Decline Of Fire Response, Boston Globe, January 2005. Current recommendations of NFPA 1710 indicate optimal response at one-minute turnout time and four-minute response time.

     First-In® is specifically designed to reduce response time. Westnet, Inc. understands the critical nature of responding to the scene of an emergency in the quickest time possible. The faster firefighters begin knocking down a fire, the lesser the chance of flashover. The quicker paramedics begin C.P.R. on a cardiac arrest patient, the better the chance of survival. “For years, the conventional wisdom was that help must come within 10 minutes (for cardiac patients). But new findings from the Mayo Clinic show that lives actually are saved or lost within six minutes.” Robert Davis. Six Minutes To Live Or Die, From USA TODAY, a division of Gannett Co., Inc. July 2003.

Reduced response time is critical to successful execution of every emergency service you perform.
