In this video, Rae Lynne Hicks from Strasburg Fire Protection Department introduces us to an upgrade to their community’s fire alarm and disaster warning system. At the heart of Strasburg, Colorado you will find a pillar of the community: the fire alarm. This system used to be controlled by a button in the fire station. Now, the system can be remotely triggered using a mobile phone by using the ioBridge IO-204, relay function board, and the free ioApp mobile app for either Android or iPhone. This simplifies alerting and testing for the team of volunteer firefighters.
“The siren is important to our community, because in the event of a tornado or other cataclysmic activity that happens to our community. Then, our siren is set off so that people understand that they need to seek cover immediately,” said Ms. Hicks. “We needed to upgrade how our siren works.”
We are proud to be a part of a solution for the Strasburg, CO community. Awesome project and thanks to Dave Klein for producing a wonderful video.
