Cataldo Ambulance in Boston, Massachusetts ran into problem after problem before they switched to Tango Tango’s services. Doug McCall, Director of Fleet Operations explained the problems they faced as well as the solutions Tango Tango brought forth, specifically when handling the Boston Marathon bombing crisis. Since that event had so much going on at once, radio communications between command centers as well as all first responders was crucial.
“Before using Tango Tango, we often had the inability to communicate from dispatch to the field.” McCall said while tending to victims at the Boston Marathon bombing, medics had trouble effectively communicating with each other as well as dispatch.
“Before using Tango Tango, we often had the inability to communicate from dispatch to the field.” McCall said while tending to victims at the Boston Marathon bombing, medics had trouble effectively communicating with each other as well as dispatch. “Often our radios could not pick up a signal if we were inside a building; they were unable to penetrate the walls.” Especially in a crisis such as that, communications are crucial for the safety and survival of first responders and the public they serve. Since purchasing Tango Tango’s services, McCall said their communications have improved tremendously. “It’s a great tool to have,” said McCall. Now they are able to communicate constantly, within the field and their command center. “We now have full coverage with Tango Tango.”
Tango Tango provides fast and full coverage for those working in the field such as first responders. McCall said another benefit of Tango Tango’s service is the ability to hold group communications with ease. “Before we had to use conference calls or radio to one another,” said McCall. Now they are able to communicate using Tango Tango’s app for group messages. “It is much easier to use the group message.” This way each employee can get ahold of another quickly, saving time.
Tango Tango will keep you connected with your team creating situational awareness during times when you need it most.
