The combined Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS) delivers a range of prevention, protection and response services to over 1.45 million residents across four local authority areas. The Service employs over 1,000 full-time and on-call firefighters who work across 50 stations. They have more than 70 fire engines and a large number of specialist support vehicles, equipped to deal with a wide range of emergencies – including fires, road traffic collisions, flooding and water rescue, animal rescue, rescue from height, and assisting colleagues in the police and ambulance service.
DWFRS deploys Panasonic TOUCHBOOOK tablets used in the cabs of Fire Appliances as Mobile Data Terminals and in the rear of the vehicles as Risk Information Talets (RITs) to accompany firefighters as they leave the vehicles.
Elemez allowed them to go beyond the use of both their MDM solution and their traditional operations tools, to shift the management of mobility to proactive, preventive and even predictive using the real-time visibility Elemez provides into the health and utilization of their mobile devices.
