Public Safety Division
The Public Safety I.T. Division, located at the County Public Safety Center in Westampton Township, is the primary provider of information technology services to the Department of Public Safety Services (County 9-1-1 Communications Center; Office of Emergency Management / County EOC; Forensic Science Lab; Radio Maintenance; Emergency Services Training Center; County Fire Marshal's Office). In addition, personnel assigned to this section provide 24/7 technical support to all County Law Enforcement agencies participating in the Burlington County Integrated Law Enforcement Computer Project, which is the primary Records Management, Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) / dispatch software, and mobile computing solution for county public safety agencies. Our staff also provides training in the various technologies utilized by county public safety agencies.
Fire & EMS
Fire and EMS agencies within Burlington County participate with our staff in the Fire and EMS I.T. Working Group, a steering committee comprised of appointed members from the County Fire Chiefs Association, County First Aid Council, Central Communications, and county government. The committee is chaired by the director of county I.T. This committee provides a forum to discuss information technology solutions for the fire and EMS services within the county.
Burlington County currently offers the fire service a web based software solution. Utilizing the Firehouse Software™ platform, this application provides all participating agencies with the ability to access and enter fire incidents, hydrant information, staff, training, and other records via the Internet, as well as complete and submit NFIRS reports to the state. Personnel from our section are responsible for maintaining the servers, CAD Interface, and technical support on a 24/7 basis. Burlington County is the first county in the state to offer this type of web based solution, and the second in the nation.
The EMS Service benefits from a CAD Interface with EMS Charts, a software package sanctioned by the State of New Jersey for use by EMS agencies, as well as other reporting services from the CAD system.
Please contact any of our staff should you have any questions relative to the services we provide to the County Public Safety community. We may be contacted at 609-518-7760 or via email.
