Ambulance, sheriff "not quite there yet' with Geo-Comm

January 4th, 2013 in News

Seven months after issuing an ultimatum to Geo-Comm regarding the functionality of its automated vehicle location system (AVL) in Callaway County, local officials say they are not quite ready to give up on the company despite having blown through several deadlines.

Although all of the kinks have not yet been worked through, Callaway County Ambulance District Director Charlie Anderson and Sgt. Clay Chism with the Callaway County Sheriff's Office said they appear to be very close to finally having a workable solution.

"They made some changes to some IP address settings and that seems to have made a big difference," Anderson said, noting there still are issues with a server locking up. "I would say that the changes they've made seem to have it working as we might expect to based on cellular reception.

"Are we ready to say it's a success and to accept it? Not quite yet, but it's close."
