Fire and Police Department
New York City
Some of the very first call boxes in history were those created for fire departments like those in New York City. Though the boxes themselves are still in place, the hardware has long since become obsolete.
CASE Emergency Systems designed a custom faceplate with wireless electronics to convert the FDNY hardwired Fire and Police call boxes to a wireless solution. The solar-powered and wireless service has proven successful and potentially will save the city millions of dollars in repairs annually.
