Intergraph’s computer-aided dispatch solution, I/CAD, and Mobile for Public Safety (MPS) will provide the foundation for dispatch and emergency operations for fire and emergency medical service (EMS) throughout New York City.
FDNY will also implement Intergraph’s I/NetViewer and I/NetDispatcher to enable web-based communications between dispatchers and personnel in the field.
