Lee County EMS Chooses OnPage for its Priority Messaging
Lee County EMS, a Florida certified ground and rotor-wing Advanced Life Support Provider has chosen OnPage for its priority messaging. With a mission of providing the highest quality out-of-hospital emergency medical care and transportation, their highly trained professionals use the best technology to meet the needs of those who require assistance. OnPage will help them achieve this critical mission day in and day out by ensuring reliable and auditable communication under all circumstances.
“We have established a new unit to support our staff, and wanted the latest technology to ensure access to this unit at all times. Traditional pagers were not an option for us because the coverage is too spotty and carrying an additional communication device in this day and age is just not acceptable.”
