Video Messengers

The First-In Video Messenger (VM) provides a visual dispatch of the call on a station television. The First-In Video Messenger can be used and located anywhere a television exists in the station. Frequently, the Video Messenger is used in dayrooms, fitness rooms, dining rooms and dormitories.

For fire departments using CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch), the Video Messenger can display which apparatus is needed, the type of call (medical aid, structure fire, etc.) and the address or location of the incident. For fire departments alerted in ways other than CAD, the Video Messenger displays the apparatus needed on the call.
