The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) deployed Intergraph's public safety solutions to advance incident prevention and response efforts on the state's 545-mile toll-road system. The PTC's Traffic Operations Center (TOC) will leverage Intergraph's integrated public safety, incident management and reporting solutions to empower responders with reliable and up-to-date information for effective and efficient emergency response to turnpike incidents.
As part of an early warning incident detection and response network spanning the entire turnpike, TOC personnel will leverage Intergraph's computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and reporting solutions to effectively manage more than 400 calls and 11,000 radio transmissions per day for emergency fire, medical and state police services. Additionally, the integrated system will also include Intergraph's business intelligence solution, which aids in generating reports, performing ad hoc data analysis, and turning information into actionable intelligence for enhanced decision-making.
"The PTC works to prevent incidents on the turnpike. However, when an event does occur, we strive to respond in the most prompt and professional manner," said Allen W. Baldwin, the PTC's Director of Safety and Operations. "Intergraph's solutions are well suited to meet our needs for a sophisticated, scalable system that provides our personnel with real-time, actionable information to prevent and respond to turnpike incidents."
"Intergraph's proven, scalable public safety and security solutions are deployed worldwide and suited for large agencies, such as the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission," said John K. Graham, President, Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure. "Now with Intergraph's public safety solutions, PTC will benefit from an unparalleled level of communication and control, emergency response and advanced incident analytics to increase operational efficiencies to promote the safety of turnpike motorists."
