Fire and EMS Departments Meet Critical Mobility Needs with DURABOOK R11 Rugged Tablet

GammaTech Computer Corporation, the North American branch of Twinhead International Corporation, today highlighted recent sales to Fire and EMS departments across the United States. These public safety agencies are turning to the DURABOOK R11 rugged tablet as a cost-effective solution that addresses critical needs for performance, functionality, and reliability. Fire and EMS departments in North Carolina, Oregon, Minnesota, Colorado, Washington, Louisiana, South Carolina, and California recently purchased the DURABOOK rugged tablet. Customers include the West Metro Fire Protection District, Monterey Fired Department, Stallings Fire Department, Newberry Country Rescue, Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue, Grays Harbor Fired District, Mankato Fire, and the Allen Parish Fire Protection District.

Trusted by Fire and EMS agencies around the world, DURABOOK rugged computing solutions are used by public safety departments for a wide variety of applications, including improved situational awareness, computer aided dispatch (CAD), emergency response protocol, code/inspections, data capture, pre-plan response, automated vehicle location (AVL), electronics patient care records (ePCR), database access, incident reporting, evidence documentation, report filing, communications programming and monitoring of LMR and more.
“Once untouchable, gone are the days when Fire and EMS department budgets were safe from government belt-tightening,” said Tom Wang, President, GammaTech. “Driven by municipal budget challenges, public safety agencies are asked to do more with less, while at the same time maintaining public safety. As a result, technology plays an increasingly critical role in improving efficiency and driving performance. The challenge with acquiring the ruggedized and highly reliable solutions these departments need is their cost. We’ve seen many agencies turn away from brands like Toughbook® and Getac for that reason. There is a need for solutions that offer high levels of reliability and long deployment cycles, but at an acquisition cost that is more in-line with budget challenges. With cost-effective, rugged solutions, we are meeting that need with the DURABOOK brand.”

The DURABOOK R11 rugged tablet PC features an 11.6” TFT LCD capacitive touch display and a powerful 5th generation Intel Broadwell Core processor, providing exceptional power for workers in public safety. It is the lightest 11.6” rugged tablet PC in its class at only 2.73 pounds, while remaining tough with Military Standard 810G and IP65 certifications for drop, shock, dust and water resistance. Paired with its detachable keyboard, the R11 becomes a flexible 2-in-1 solution. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/DurabookR11
