Fire Station Alerting

Smart activation with broader MAX integration

MAX Fire Station Alerting Preview


Zetron’s MAX Fire Station Alerting is a purpose-built system designed to integrate with standard CAD systems delivered as a simple solution allowing dispatching from a central site.  The system allows activation of the station alerting system to turn on lights, open doors, turn on fans, turn off stove, connect to a PA for alert tones and dispatcher voice, and sense other inputs (monitor station equipment and tire switches).  It includes built-in interfaces and shared components with MAX solutions such as MAX Call Taking, MAX CAD/GIS and MAX Dispatch creating an integrated command & control suite. With MAX Fire Station Alerting, you are buying more than an alerting system.

It’s More Than Alerting!

Fire Station Alerting requires a coordinated approach to communications. From notification alerts and voice announcements, to automatic door and fire station sensor activation, keeping everything in sync is critical to first responders receiving the most efficient response plan. Built on the same platform as MAX Dispatch, MAX Fire Station Alerting delivers a complete and effective alerting solution and information flow from command and control.
