Activu Deploys Command Center for Public Safety Emergency Operations in Bergen County, NJ

DENVILLE, NJ--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - Activu® Corporation, a leading provider in command and control solutions for homeland security and emergency management, announces the successful deployment of a new Public Safety Emergency Operations Center for Bergen County, NJ.

The new Public Safety Emergency Operations Center of Bergen County, NJ, is a 911 Command Center equipped with a Communications Center responsible for public safety response including County Police, Fire Coordinators, and County Emergency Management. The center is currently contracted for shared services with thirteen municipalities, with additional municipalities intending to consolidate their services in 2011. The new operations center could mean potential savings for towns that choose to run emergency dispatch through the facility. Consolidating services could save each municipality up to 200K a year, according to a recently published article.

The facility is equipped to handle county emergencies and dispatch services. The three year project brings together public safety dispatch and the Office of Emergency Management. In a single facility, the county has created a coordinated and cohesive response team for daily operations and emergencies.

The County of Bergen selected the Activu large-scale visualization and collaboration solution because of its robust feature set and ability to easily expand to additional sites in the future. Activu is a software-based IP solution which is integrated into the operations' LAN/WAN environment. This allows operators to access and view any information source from their network and display it on their large-scale video wall and LCD monitors within and around the Communications Center.

The center is equipped with the Activu software suite which is deployed within the Communications Center, Emergency Operations Center, dispatch facility, and executive conference rooms. Operators, executives, and government officials can share information and collaborate between any of these locations.
