HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Oct.

Napa officials were seeking a system with greater performance and flexibility, which could also expand for an interoperable regional effort that includes neighbor and Intergraph customer Sonoma County.
"Following a thorough evaluation of all our options, our team judged that Intergraph provided the best solution," said project lead Shirley Perkins of the Napa Fire Department. "The Intergraph system is far more flexible and robust than what we are currently using. Our vision in Napa is to implement a state-of-the-art incident response and management system that allows growth and change over the next decade. Our mission is to work with other counties, such as Sonoma, to create a regional system. We believe Intergraph is the top choice to help us accomplish this mission."
Alice Dilbeck, general manager of the Intergraph Public Safety & Government business unit, said: "As a leader in the public safety market, Intergraph offers a system with multi-agency capabilities that allow our customers to build a unified emergency response. Recent emergency incidents and events have brought the need for interoperability to the forefront. This is particularly important for public safety agencies on the U.S. West Coast, as we have seen in recent reports on wildfires crossing numerous jurisdictions."
The Napa public safety agencies are now implementing and training on the system. The system is expected to be fully operational by August 2006.
