GPS Repeaters for Fire & Rescue Services
Constant State of Readiness
When responding to a domestic or industrial fire, road traffic accident, flood, or other emergency calls, seconds can be the difference between life and death. When a fire appliance exits the station/garage in an emergency, the GPS onboard system may take several seconds or even minutes to acquire the GPS signal leaving Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs) and satnav devices disconnected from critical data, perhaps adding vital seconds or minutes to your response time.
Bringing GPS inside your Station/Garage
The GPS signal is too weak to penetrate buildings and when appliances are parked inside the fire station, they are unable to receive the signal. Therefore, when they leave the station in an emergency, it can sometimes take valuable seconds or minutes to lock onto the GPS signal. Chronos’ Ofcom compliant GPS repeater solutions bring the GPS signal inside FRS ensuring excellent indoor GPS coverage at all times. Fire appliances have a constant lock on to the GPS signal while inside the fire station enabling command and control centres to have constant access to the wherabouts of appliances. Upon exiting, the satnav device does not take valuable seconds or minutes to re-acquire the GPS signal. Chronos offers custom GPS repeating kits that can be installed into whatever type of structure you have.
