Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) has implemented a new state-of-the-art Portable LTE Rapid Deploy Camera provided by Excelerate.

This technology is set to significantly enhance emergency response capabilities, providing SFRS with a versatile and powerful tool for a wide range of scenarios.

The Rapid Deploy Camera is designed for quick deployment, providing exceptional flexibility in dynamic emergency scenarios.

This accessibility is made possible through Excelerate’s Exstream Video Application, which guarantees the highest level of protection for customer data through full encryption. This robust security measure provides peace of mind during sensitive operations, safeguarding the integrity and confidentiality of information whilst enhancing overall situational awareness.
