Are you a Maine EMS agency?

If you have existing technology but are interested in upgrading your equipment or expanding the capacity of your equipment under this opportunity, don’t hesitate to complete the interest form through Maine EMS.

NEWCOM’s contract with the state allows variation for each unit based on what is needed to reach the desired level of connectivity. Therefore, we can perform upgrades to existing equipment if desired. If you have other emergency vehicles that you wish to outfit with this technology (e.g., fire apparatus, law enforcement vehicles, snowplows, etc.), there is a Master Service Agreement with the State of Maine that is accessible to local governments.

Based in the metropolitan Boston area with operations nationwide, NEWCOM designs the most comprehensive systems based on our client’s needs, leveraging “off-the-shelf” technology solutions with customized applications and implementation. NEWCOM, as a systems integrator and solution provider for public safety and government, provides the critical link between wireless technology and business optimization.
