Success Stories

Fire Departments & EMS teams alike trust Eastern Communications for the industry's best technical sophistication, reliability, and security. Read more about our customers' successes below.

Surviving a Direct Lightning Strike

A regionally significant East Coast county fire authority received a 4 AM lighting strike at their command post, wiping out the use of their dispatch console. Leveraging their maintenance relationship with Eastern, technicians and engineers were on site in less than an hour. Deploying a vehicular dispatch console, Eastern assisted the end user in wiring the functioning vehicle dispatch console into the command post, providing an immediate stop gap measure to sustain operations while a new replacement console was sourced and prepped for installation.

Sophisticated Migration with Minimal Operator Impact

A city-wide system in the Mid-Atlantic heavily relied upon by local fire and EMS reached out to Eastern to solve long-term interference issues. By creatively leveraging in-place resources and the unique topography of the surrounding area, Eastern helped the end user migrate from legacy, proprietary technology to an open-standard, interoperable P25 platform with zero operational impact to local units.
