Urgences-santé Chooses DMR and its Partner Emergensys Solutions for its $8.6 M Project

    Acquisition of a Computer Assisted Dispatch System

    MONTREAL, Feb. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - DMR's President and CEO, Mr. André
Pouliot, is pleased to announce that Corporation d'urgences-santé has decided
to engage the services of DMR and its partner, Emergensys Solutions, to
conduct an $8.6 M project to implement an integrated 911 call taking and
dispatch system.
    In the coming 20 months, DMR and Emergensys Solutions will be working
together to implement the call dispatch system and its technology
infrastructure. They will also be integrating them with existing systems and
training personnel to use them. DMR will then be in charge of maintenance and
upgrade work for the system and provide the required support for a five-year
period, which can be extended at the request of Urgences-santé.
    Quebec's only public pre-hospital emergency service organization,
Urgences-santé is the largest organization of its kind in Canada and sixth
largest in North America. Serving the regions of Montreal and Laval, it
handles over 345,000 emergency calls a year, that is, between 40% and 50% of
emergency calls in Quebec. Urgences-santé relies on a fleet of 175 vehicles,
129 of which are ambulances dispatched from three operational centers.
    "We're please to be contributing to the improvement of the emergency
services provided to the population. Urgences-santé can count on the know-how,
diligence and professionalism of DMR and its partner, Emergensys Solutions.
Since DMR is already up to speed implementing an integrated 911 system in
Malaysia, this assignment for Urgences-santé confirms DMR's world-class
expertise in the area of emergency applications," confirmed André Pouliot.
