Firecom’s systems will be there to support the men and women of the Philadelphia Fire Department as they protect the community’s citizens and visitors.

Firecom, the leader in team communication solutions for firefighters and emergency responders, today announced that its communication systems have been deployed and are in use across all 191 Philadelphia Fire Department fire trucks, aerials and other apparatus. By incorporating Firecom’s fire communication headsets and systems in its current fleet and standardizing on them for future apparatus, the Philadelphia Fire Department has provided industry-leading communication and hearing protection for all Philadelphia fire fighters.

“Not only did the Philadelphia Fire Department need a provider it could trust, but the size of our department and the variety of our apparatus required a flexible communication system that could meet specific requirements for each apparatus,” said Philadelphia Fire Captain Joshua McGuoirk. “We chose Firecom in part because of their ability to understand our needs and to provide proven solutions.”

Firecom worked closely with reseller partners RSI Fire and Witmer Public Safety Group on configuring, installing and supporting the solution for the Philadelphia Fire Department. The Firecom-equipped fleet currently contains five aerials, 56 engines, 28 tillers, two mobile command vehicles, two squad trucks, 37 two-person vehicles, 58 medics and three rescue vehicles.

“The Philadelphia Fire Department is focused on protecting the health and safety of its members as they serve this great community,” said Philadelphia Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers.

“By standardizing on Firecom, Philadelphia Fire Department shows its dedication to the health and safety of their community of 2,400 uniformed members,” said Firecom Executive Vice President Reed Stager. “Firecom’s systems will be there to support the men and women of the Philadelphia Fire Department as they protect the community’s citizens and visitors.”
