Woking, Surrey 8th May 2013 – Wiltshire and Dorset Fire and Rescue Services have both decided to procure the Symphony Bluelight Suite of gazetteer management software from industry leader Aligned Assets.
The system, which has been developed specifically for use in the emergency services, is designed to enable the creation of corporate gazetteers that can feed all frontline and back office systems with the Ordnance Survey’s AddressBase Premium – the Country’s most accurate and up to date address data.
Both Wiltshire and Dorset Fire and Rescue Services will be using the software as part of the Networked Fire Control Services Partnership (NFCSP) that will see collaboration between Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire, and Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Services.
The four brigades will each maintain their own local control rooms, but are working together to create a greater level of resilience through the ability to be able to take emergency 999 calls for other Control Rooms within the partnership and mobilise appliances for them if necessary. As a consequence, they have all moved to using Symphony Bluelight in order to facilitate a greater level of interoperability.
“We now have over 30% of all English Fire and Rescue Services using products from the Bluelight range of gazetteer solutions,” explained Andy Hird, Managing Director of Aligned Assets. “With the only gazetteer software on the market designed specifically for, and in collaboration with the emergency services, we look forward to many more joining the Aligned Assets family.”
