  GOLDEN, CO, Feb 29 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
Locution Systems, Inc., which offers an advanced fire station alerting
and automated 911 dispatching system for fire and EMS departments, today
announced that it has been commissioned to provide its CADVoice(R) fire
station alerting and automated dispatching system to two U.S. cities. The
cities of Rogers, Arkansas and Bayside, Wisconsin will deploy Locution
Systems' fire station alerting system: CADVoice(R).

    The city of Rogers, Arkansas has purchased Locution Systems' CADVoice(R)
Radio -- which provides automated 911 dispatching via the fire
department's radio system. Rogers, Arkansas has seven fire stations, and
uses the New World Aegis Computer-Aided Dispatching (CAD) system, plus
Motorola radios.

    The city of Bayside, Wisconsin has purchased Locution Systems'
CADVoice(R) Station, which provides automated 911 dispatching directly to
fire stations via an Internet Protocol (IP) network, and CADVoice(R)
Radio, which will be used as a back-up automated dispatching path and to
dispatch first responders who already are out in the field. Bayside,
Wisconsin has five fire stations, and uses the Tiburon Viper
Computer-Aided Dispatching (CAD) system, and Motorola radios.

    Bayside, Wisc. also has purchased one of Locution Systems' modular fire
station alerting functions: an acknowledgment button that will reside in
each fire station and allows responding units to provide acknowledgement
back to the 911 communications center that they have received the 911
dispatch and are responding to it.

    Locution Systems' fire station alerting system is comprised of a variety
of modular, pick-and-choose-what-you-need technologies including
automated 911 dispatching using a pleasant, natural-sounding female
voice, and a wide array of fire station alerting technologies including
LED reader boards, turn-out count-up timers, automated fire station
lighting systems, automated fire station alerting tones, automated zoned
dispatching for multi-unit fire stations, automated apparatus bay doors,
automated gas stove shut-off (when the responding fire-EMS unit leaves
the station to respond to a call), and more.

    "Locution Systems' fire station alerting system is designed to both speed
up response times to fires and medical emergencies, and reduce stress for
911 dispatchers and first responders," noted Glenn Neal, Locution
Systems' founder, president, and chief technology officer.

    "Our fire station alerting technology has been proven in the field in
small, medium, and large public safety departments throughout the United
States and Canada -- and we are delighted to bring these life- and
property-saving technologies to the cities of Rogers, Arkansas and
Bayside, Wisconsin," said Mr. Neal.
