Cincinnati, OH Becomes 62nd ASAP-to-PSAP
The City of Cincinnati OH is the 62nd Emergency Communications Center in the United States to implement ASAP, and the 4th ECC in the state of Ohio to implement ASAP.
According to Bill Hobgood, the consultant who managed the Cincinnati Ohio ASAP implementation, “Cincinnati Emergency Communications Officials are thrilled with the ASAP go-live. On day two of the ASAP go-live, an area of Cincinnati experienced a power outage that normally would have resulted in a barrage of calls coming into the call-taking queue from alarm companies calling in alarms via telephone. Because ASAP completely bypasses the call-taking process with no telephones involved, there was no backlog this morning during this outage. One official noted that the ASAP implementation was one of the smoothest projects implemented at the city of Cincinnati’s ECC.”
Cincinnati OH went live on October 15th & 16th with Rapid Response Monitoring iand Vector Security initially, followed by Security Central, Alert 360, Tyco (Johnson Controls), Affiliated Monitoring, AT&T Digital Life, the National Monitoring Center, Vivint, Brinks Home Security, Guardian Protection, and Protection One. ADT will be live with Cincinnati in the next few weeks.
