Early this year KVRS launched their SPOT emergency beckon loan program and according to Jerry Kiffer of KVRS this technology provided by ACS will allow rescue teams to monitor the location of the rescue beacons directly from the field. Kiffer reports this technology coupled with the SPOT beacons will literally take the search out of search and rescue.
The SPOT program slated to be in full operation in the spring of 2011 is made possible by the internet connectivity provided by ACS. This is an exciting project that will definitely save lives. It has been a real pleasure to work with the staff from ACS and are very proud to partner with a company who shows such a commitment to the safety of our community
The new equipment has arrived and the installation and testing should be completed next week. We look forward to utilizing the new capabilities provided by ACS. Kiffer asks that community members stop by the ACS office at 25 Jefferson Way, Suite 101 and let them know their support of search and rescue is appreciated.
