Getac V110 Convertible Laptop Speed St. Louis Area Responder Rate

Less than 1% Failure Rate

Increased Productivity

Greater Public Safety Awareness


Central County uses OMG (formerly Sierra Wireless) routers and runs their dispatching system off the routers using a customized Central Square Technology mobile client that routes the vehicles to their calls, then files and tracks all the notes and time slips related to that call. The system sounds simple, not terribly sophisticated at all, until all the potential variables are calculated. This put accurate and reliable GPS technology at the forefront of 911-CCE’s list of rugged technology needs.



“Our previous makers’ units were classic rugged laptops. They were big and bulky, an impediment to visibility in the vehicles’ cabs and harder to dock, undock, and move out of the way than the Getacs” says Thuston.

With the recent revamp of classic Caddies and Packards, the 911 Central County Emergency Department team is fully outfitted with shiny new Ford Crown Vic “chiefs’ cars,” equipped with today’s most eye-blistering blue-and-clear strobe lights on their roofs and blaring electronic “wa-wa” howlers that can be heard for a mile and a half in all directions. Deserving of the latest in rugged technology, 911 Central County Emergency’s tech guru, Matt Thuston, knew that an upgrade from “big, bulky, an impediment to visibility and hard to dock” rugged laptops was due.

This robust and flexible device was instrumental in helping Central County 911 achieve increased response rates, improve situational awareness, and provide the fastest on-scene first responder and backup unit routing.
