Rhea County TN Deploys GeoConex CAD System

Nov 17 2010

Rhea County (Tenn.) Emergency Communications District (ECD) deployed the GeoConex CAD system and off-site backup for disaster recovery. GeoConex converted five years of Rhea County’s CAD data from its previous software into the new next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) CAD system. “

Rhea County 9-1-1 answers all 9-1-1 calls for the county and provides dispatching for the Rhea County Sheriff’s Department, the Dayton, Spring City and Graysville police departments, Rhea EMS, and volunteer fire and rescue departments," said Rhea County Emergency Communications District Director, Shane Clark. 

With the number of calls Rhea County receives annually, the center needed to be able to provide service in the event of a disaster happening at the dispatch center. With the center’s off-site backup established, Rhea County will be able to be back up and running to provide service without delay.
