Zello Offers PTT Version Free to Non-Profit Public-Safety Groups
Monday, August 12, 2019 | Comments

Push-to-talk (PTT) provider Zello announced that its solution is available at no cost to first responders, eliminating common challenges related to budget, interagency communications and radio coverage. The new offering is for non-profit-based EMS workers, paramedics, firefighters, police and volunteer groups.

“Zello has greatly improved team communications during critical situations within just the first month of use,” said Steve Castellano, IT leader/systems technician with Delaware County Emergency Services, a beta customer of the free service. “Without the app, we would have faced major challenges being able to coordinate people outside of radio coverage, and every minute counts in situations like these. Zello has given us a lifeline to extend our capabilities and organize our teams better than ever before.”

With the new offering, groups on the front lines of emergencies will be able to use their everyday work or personal phones and devices to gain easy access to encrypted communications that works between jurisdictions and allows for an expansive live communications range. Zello’s enterprise-level service provides unlimited capacity to communicate securely across multiple responding units, even when experiencing the common first-responder challenge of deploying outside a usual service area.

“Our mission at Zello is to enable the power of the human voice, and first responders know better than anyone how crucial it is to have instant communication across teams and jurisdictions,” said Bill Moore, CEO of Zello. “The free version of Zello has been an essential tool for saving lives, and now the managed version is available without any hurdles to public-safety organizations.”
