Fire and Rescue Solutions

Mission-Critical Radio, Security, Fleet, and Data Solutions for Fire and Rescue Agencies

When firefighters and rescue workers are called to the scene of an emergency, every second they can shave off their response time counts. It is literally a matter of life and death. At MCA, we have collaborated with fire departments across the country to provide them with the life-saving technological solutions they need to thrive.

Modern fire and rescue operations rely on technology to furnish them with the intelligence they need from the firehouse to the scene of an emergency. Connecting firefighters in the field with other public safety agencies and central command is critically important to their success.

Technological Trends in Fire and Rescue

Many first responders have already deployed solutions such as ruggedized laptops and tablets to communicate with central command and other public safety agencies. What’s next on the horizon for your fire and rescue teams? 

In the years to come, mission-critical data from IoT-enabled devices will play an increasingly prominent role in fire and rescue operations. Triggering the automatic opening of a firehouse’s bay doors when an emergency call comes in is one example of how IoT is producing greater efficiencies in fire and rescue. But what about cars that send distress signals to 911 following an accident without human intervention?

Whatever technologies emerge for fire and rescue, MCA will always be on the cutting edge of the most innovative trends in the field.

MCA’s solutions for fire and rescue operations are designed to withstand the most hazardous conditions. From radios purpose-built for mission-critical operations to the best in-vehicle routers for use on dedicated public safety networks such as AT&T FirstNet™ and Verizon Frontline™, collaborating with fire and rescue operations on solutions that make sense for your agency is more than a job to us—it’s a calling.

Radio Solutions

Our mission-critical radio solutions for fire and rescue operations include ruggedized laptops, P25 two-way radios for interoperability between agencies, the best-in-class dispatch systems, and much more.



Our full line of APX25 two-way digital radios from Motorola Solutions are APCO P25 compatible and ensure your fire and rescue operation will enjoy complete interoperability with other agencies with the loudest, clearest radios on the market.

Rugged Panasonic Toughbooks and Toughpads, available from MCA, give your fire and rescue operations the tools to communicate mission-critical information in the most hazardous of environments and under the most extreme of conditions.



The last thing you want when you arrive at the scene of an incident in a building is a lack of knowledge of what is happening inside. With our Public Safety DAS solutions, your fire and rescue teams can communicate both inside the building and out.
