The F110 is rugged and reliable enough to go with Amstetten’s firefighters wherever and whenever they’re needed.



Firefighters need logistics devices of extreme reliability, and extreme speed.

Firefighters work in extreme conditions, at any time, in any weather, on any terrain, for as long as it takes, at all costs. Firefighters are called upon to handle all manner of emergencies, including commercial, residential, and vehicle. Other dangerous incidents they contend with include industrial emergencies, toxic chemical spills, gas leaks, floods, and various rescue operations. They need vehicles, devices, and equipment that are of the highest quality and reliability. However, fire departments are increasingly confronted with new challenges, such as extreme weather conditions, new technologies in vehicles & buildings, and the need to maintain situational & geographic awareness at all times.

Rosenbauer is one of the most important suppliers of firefighting vehicles and equipment in the world. The Austrian company has 150 years of experience helping institutions protect & save lives. Rosenbauer has created an innovative solution, the EMEREC mobile information management software, to equip firefighters with reliable logistics, but it requires a device with great reliability and speed.


The Getac F110 fully-rugged tablet keeps Rosenbaum a trusted partner for real-life heroes.

Powered by EMEREC and supported by Getac’s value partner Mettenmeier, the Getac F110 fully-rugged tablet was deemed the best choice of hardware for this solution, now in use by the fire department of Amstetten, Austria. The F110 was chosen for its cutting-edge technology and an extremely rugged chassis, built for almost anything.

The F110 is light and portable, and resistant to vibration, impact, moisture, rain, cold, and heat, while featuring a battery life of up to 12 hours. LumiBond 2.0 technology allows users to interact with the screen using a stylus pen, fingertips, or gloves. It is also easily readable in a wide range of lighting conditions, including the bright & variable light (and sometimes extreme dark) at the scene of a fire.

According to Mettenmeier Technical Sales Consultant Sebastian Retthofer, "The Getac F110 fully-rugged tablet has proven the best choice for this project because it not only features the latest technology and a rugged design suitable for the most extreme conditions, it meets all the strictest certification standards in the military sector (MIL-STD).”



With the Rosenbauer/Getac solution, brokered by Mettenmeier, Amstetten’s fire department is now more productive, and can better serve its community.

The firefighting volunteers of Amstetten can now respond to emergencies more quickly and more efficiently than before, often under difficult conditions, such as extreme weather. Furthermore, emergency responders can perform their duties more safely, knowing that they’ll be receiving the right information at the right time from their operations center.

According to Armin Blutsch, Vice President of the Austrian Firefighters Association, "Before Rosenbauer's tablet, our volunteers worked with standard, heavy, cumbersome tablets that were generally not suitable for the extreme conditions that we normally work in."

Sebastian Retthofer added, "Thanks to the partnership between Getac and Rosenbauer, Mettenmeier has met all of Rosenbauer's needs and provided the best solution for its partner and client. The special teamwork between all parties and the superb quality of the hardware and software that this entailed has meant Rosenbauer can meet all requirements brought to our attention by Amstetten firefighters."
