Firefighter Response System
This is Craig Schurter, founder of Advanced First Responder Solutions; provider of the Firefighter Response System.
A little late to the discussion, but thought I'd chime in….
I agree with the concerns about driving and talking on the phone. We don't advocate talking on the phone and driving, and as such you'll find that our system enables you to push just one button and you're registered as responding… no matter how many stations you have or whether or not you allow personnel to go directly to the incident via POV or your response is delayed. If your department has more than one station, you don't need to follow a phone tree to register your response, we have a toll free number for each individual station. This enables you to truly only have to press one button to register your response, no matter what station you are responding to, if you are delayed, or if you are going POV.
This method is a bit more expensive for us but we believe it's well worth the added cost for the the value in safety it provides. Growing up in a family devoted to the fire service, and being a volunteer firefighter and resident firefighter for over five years taught me the value of safety. We are proud to be the pioneers in this innovative technology and we work hard to provide a system that is safe and easy to use.
One other point I wanted to clarify, in regards to pricing. Our pricing has not increased sense we launched the service over 3 years ago.
I'd be happy to visit with any of you, please don't hesitate to reach out…we're here to help. 877.274.2377
