**This app is to be used alongside an eDispatches subscription.
The eDispatches service is available to emergency response agencies and their members. Hundreds of thousands of people rely daily on the eDispatches system all across North America.
With the eDispatches app you can:
* Receive push notifications for emergency dispatches
* Listen to audio dispatches
* Replay alerts from the last 24 hours
* Control settings for alert notifications
* Listen to streaming audio from your eDispatches equipment
* Generate maps & driving directions
* Send text messages to recipients
* Send Priority Blast messages to recipients
* Send and receive availability information
* View response information for members during active calls
Override the Ring/Silent switch with Critical Alerts! Available in iOS 12+, when Critical Alerts are enabled and an eDispatches notification arrives, the app will play the alert sound even when your Ring/Silent switch is in the silent position!
This version of the app also adds two new "widgets" to the Today View. One widget is for Audio Alerts and shows the time we received your latest Audio Alert, and if the audio is playable, it displays a play button. For those with CAD Alerts, we will show you the emergency nature, location and incident number, if provided by your CAD system. You can also map the alert directly from the widget.
As always, we're constantly fixing bugs and making the application better. We appreciate all you do for the First Responder community!
Ratings and Reviews
The app does what it's supposed to do.
My only complaint/update request is that I can't change the sound from Bluetooth back to my handset when I'm connected to a device. For example I'm listening to FM radio in my car but I have to change to Bluetooth input on my radio to be able to hear the dispatches. In order for me to hear the dispatch without changing my car radio to BT is to turn BT off on my phone.
Would like to se and option map to where we can find the location when the give out address as we are a small town but big country to respond to always having to call in to find where it is located would be easier if we could just push map and it would show us location
Developer Response ,
We actually have this functionality since version 3.0 with our CAD integration. We'd be happy to help your department set it up if you give our sales or support team a call!
I have had this app for over a year and have not had a problem with it. Over the last month or so I noticed that the on duty option is no longer available in the settings. Why is that? Besides that I have no problems with this app.
