USDD’s Phoenix G2 Station Alerting System Supports Fourth Consecutive Super Bowl

Football

US Digital Designs recently played a part in the fourth consecutive Super Bowl® game. To be more specific, the Phoenix G2 fire statiion alerting system played a pivotal, off-field role: it was the behind-the-scenes automated dispatching alerting service for many of the public safety professionals (firefighters and first responders, etc.) responsible for serving the residents and fans of Super Bowl LII.

Here is a quick look at US Digital Designs past Super Bowl participation:

Super Bowl LII

February 4, 2018 – Minneapolis, MN, U.S. Bank Stadium

Although the Minneapolis Fire Department itself is not yet a USDD customer, they are servicing nearly all nearby communities who helped to assist and respond to dispatch calls during SBLII. Those towns and cities include: Ramsey County Emergency Communications, St. Paul Fire, North St. Paul Fire, Burnsville Fire, Anoka County PSDS, Coon Rapids Fire, Dakota Communications Center, Falcon Heights Fire, Lake Johanna Fire, Little Canada Fire, Maplewood Fire, New Brighton Fire, Roseville Fire Rescue EMS, St. Cloud Fire, South Metro Fire, and Vadnais Heights Fire.

Super Bowl LI

February 5, 2017 – Houston, TX, NRG Stadium

Many of Houston’s nearby communities use the Phoenix G2, such as The Woodlands, Conroe, Katy, Willowfork, Fulshear, Simonton, Missouri City, Fort Bend County and Montgomery County Hospital District.

Super Bowl 50

February 7, 2016 – Santa Clara, CA, Levi’s Stadium

Santa Clara County uses the system, and there are upcoming implementations with its neighboring communities, including San Jose, Palo Alto, Mountain View, and more!

Super Bowl XLIX

February 1, 2015 – Glendale AZ, University of Phoenix Stadium

The Phoenix G2 system is installed in Glendale as well as every major department nearby, including: Avondale, Buckeye, Chandler, Gilbert, Goodyear, Mesa, Phoenix, Peoria, Scottsdale, Sun City, Sun Lakes, Surprise, and Tempe.

The US Digital Design team expressed in a release that it is very proud to have helped customers in all of these communities as they had the challenging task of protecting the lives and property around the above-mentioned stadiums.

The company also saluted the city of Minneapolis, the team at U.S. Bank Stadium, TriTech Systems (one of our many CAD partners) as well as the Philadelphia Eagles, winners of the Super Bowl LII.

 The term SUPER BOWL is a registered trademark owned by the National Football League.
