The South Adams County Fire Department (SACFD) protects approximately 65,000 residents and their property by practicing prevention, emergency response and public education across 72 square miles.
To accomplish its mission, SACFD maintains locations and vehicles, all of which need to be ready to respond within a moment’s notice. They protect their premises, in part, through video surveillance. This equipment was the primary reason for their engagement with us.
When he requested a proposal from TEC, South Adams Fire Department IT Manager, Kevin Keller, was spending a great deal of time maintaining, managing, and reporting on the department’s surveillance systems.
SACFD had a wide range of camera equipment from past engagements that were running on disparate systems. This meant that whenever video footage was requested, he would need to travel to the location of the equipment itself. Moreover, each system needed to be maintained separately.
Kevin asked TEC for a proposal that would standardize their surveillance system with one vendor. The new system would need to be capable of delivering video remotely, operable from a centralized location controlled by Kevin. TEC was one of three bids appraised by SACFD; we were chosen based on price and reputation.
“TEC did a great job of running with the project without any assistance from us. Everything was done right and done on time.”

TEC developed a solution to bring all stations under one platform. Where possible, cameras were repurposed, but in many cases were replaced along with DVRs. We cabled them together under one platform.
The solution performed exactly as Kevin asked. Now, Kevin can access saved footage from any location without leaving his office. This saves time, effort and mileage, reducing the many annoying headaches and issues that had become part of his daily life.
