Traditional fire pagers are limited in range and function. With Chief Tone Alert, you can monitor pages while outside your district, out for a jog, or on vacation. Volunteers that can't wear a pager in their professional office can now be notified and respond. Reach into buildings that because of their construction block out low power radio signals.
As soon as our tone receiver matches one of the tones for your agency, your staff is instantly notified through a push notification on their Android or Apple based smartphones through the Chief Mobile app.
Departments today are taking on a ever greater role in their communities. Agencies may have different tones for Fire, EMS, Dive Teams, Fire Police, Special Rescue, Hazmat, Officer Call, and more that are directed toward certain members. With Chief Tone alert, you have the ability to select only the tone sets you want to be notified for. Not on EMS? No problem! Simply choose the channels you want to be alerted for.
When you choose to enroll in Chief Tone alert, you will need to provide us with the radio frequency of your dispatch pagers, as well as the sound frequency of each of your tones. We support long tone, 2-tone, and multi-tone paging. We will pre-configure the equipment in a heavy duty enclosure that you can conveniently mount on the wall. Just plug in the power and network cable and you are all set!
Your citizens expect you to be there when they need you, but communication systems do break down. CAD systems go offline. Networks can crash. Internet outages. Radio Tower got hit by lightning. You might have even forgot to charge your pager. Chief Tone Alert supplemented with Chief Messaging and traditional paging enables you to have the peace of mind that when someone calls 9-1-1 your members will be notified.
Across the country, especially in rural areas, members frequently are members of mutiple agencies. Sometimes they volunteer in both the town they work and live. Or perhaps you are a paid staff member at one agency and a volunteer at another. Whatever the situation, if that agency utilizes Tone Alert, you can receive alerts from all the agencies you are authorized to be alerted for. They can even be set on a schedule!
