How is PageGate Used By Portage County?
Portage County uses PageGate in their Dispatch Center to link their computer aided dispatch system, Tritech VisionCAD, to IamResponding. When a dispatcher adds a unit (ambulance, fire truck, etc) to a call, the VisionCAD looks for that unit to be in a group that has been set up to be sent a message. VisionCAD then connects to PageGate to pick up the corresponding number. That then reaches out to the IamResponding number associated to it, thus paging or texting anyone that is setup in the IamResponding group.
PageGate automates paging outlying fire departments and emergency responders so the Portage County dispatchers don't have to manually page them. PageGate frees up the dispatchers time and more accurately sends messages to the correct individuals.
