Do you Need Emergency Response + Repair Services? 10 Questions to Consider

There are a variety of users that require 24/7/365 Emergency Response & Repair Services (ERRS) in many “Mission Critical” contexts. Our clients include the Government of Alberta AFRRCS system, upon which first responders across Alberta rely. However, our ERRS service is also available to commercial and industrial clients who require high levels of radio system up-time because of safety, productivity and/or environmental or other operating challenges.

Our ERRS offerings incorporate the following elements:

  • Service Level Definition; Scope of responsibility, level of response, resource definition, speed of response, & KPI’s.
  • Monitoring; Performance monitoring, notification procedures, response communication protocols and related responsibilities.

  • Communications; communications matrix, issue escalation, technician response notifications, process/protocol mapping, close-out.
  • Review and performance assessment.

Programs are custom designed to address client-specific needs related to the above elements. These solutions are only available on a priority basis to clients who have entered into a supply contract with Westcan ACS. This helps ensure that our team is aware of the client needs, equipment, and expectations so that we can deliver an appropriate response when required.
