Intergraph dispatches E911 tech to Fort Bragg

Intergraph has won a $2 million contract to develop a data-rich emergency dispatch system for Fort Bragg, N.C.

Company officials have developed E911 systems for numerous cities. In bidding for this contract, awarded by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Intergraph officials are applying that experience "to the mini-city of Fort Bragg," said Kerry Fehrenbach, the company's executive marketing manager.

The system will pull together information from 911 calls, fire alarms, emergency alerts and predictions of potential incidents. As part of the same contract, UT-Battelle will manage a network of sensors sniffing for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear hazards. That network also will feed the dispatch system.

This fusion of data with underlying electronic mapping technology, will give dispatchers complete situational awareness, helping them quickly understand the type of problem that has occurred, where it has occurred and the resources needed to respond, Fehrenbach said.

Also, in the event of major emergencies, the system makes it possible to send mass alerts via public safety networks, according to company officials.
