Success Stories

San Diego Fire Rescue

San Diego Fire-Rescue sought to replace archaic mobile display terminals in hundreds of city fire trucks, ambulances and other emergency vehicles. The agency was able to accomplish this through a grant financed in part by the Urban Area Security Initiative grant funding, issued from the Federal Office of Homeland Security, to help urban areas enhance their overall security and preparedness level to prevent, respond, and recover from acts of terrorism and credible threat information. The 2003 Cedar Fire, which destroyed more than 2,000 homes in San Diego County, emphasized the city’s critical need for a better mobile public safety communications system.
