The changeover to digital e*BOS alerting procedures has gone off without a hitch for fire brigades in Börde, the second largest county in Saxony-Anhalt. All 254 sirens in the county as well as the 1,700 pagers used by firefighters, paramedics and rescue workers are now controlled using the e*BOS “virtually private” alerting network. This could have a resounding effect on public warning systems all over Germany.
e*Message presented a “storm siren” at Bremerhaven’s 4th Storm Congress. The new device uses a warning module equipped with the necessary wake-up function. The Fraunhofer Institute (ISST) and e*Message are currently field-testing the storm early warning system.
