Find specific incident or alert types, unit assignments and other critical data for review, then pin specific alerts to access and/or analyze at a later time.>>Receive simultaneous alerts. Life is unpredictable and, more often than not, first responders might have multiple incidents to which theyre responding. The FSA Mobile App provides concurrent alerts, such as dispatch announcements, administrative alerts, IT support notifications and application update notifications.>>Hear the same, consistent, automated tones and voice as the station. A predictable tone and easily comprehended vocalized alert (VoiceAlert) can dramatically increase the accuracy and comprehension of the incident details.>>Turn alerts on or off. Nobody deserves rest more than off-duty emergency responders, so the FSA Mobile App has a simple on and off switch to disable or enable push-notifications.>>Filter notifications for a specific need or desire. The fire agencys FSAS administrator can assign users to units or stations and specifically match what individual users need to see and hear. Users may also create their own individual filters.>>Receive alerts for more than just one unit or station. Alert monitors enable users to receive alerts for combinations of units, stations, districts or incident types. Supervisors or special team members can keep up on activities of interest. >>Rely on the app for redundant alerts. A user can be out-of-quarters, out-of-apparatus and stuck with a malfunctioning radio, yet still have another redundant means to ensure that the appropriate personnel are alerted as quickly as possible.**REQUEST ACCESS**If youre a customer of US Digital Designs and need to gain access to the app, please request a FSA Mobile App activation code from your fire agencys FSAS administrator.
