After returning from three days on the road visiting Apple stores in Salt Lake City, Rancho Cucamonga, and Newport Beach, EVALS could not be more excited about the future of technology and the benefits a mobile workforce will realize by taking advantage of these advancements.
By working closely with Apple, our partner, Wolfpack Solutions, has been able to identify significant improvements in effectiveness and efficiency for Public Safety. When properly implemented, iOS can help every division in the Fire Service and Law Enforcement.
EVALS was honored to sit at the table with Wolfpack solutions and Tablet Command to share our product features and benefits. Although Salt Lake City and Southern California are 700 miles apart, fire agencies in these areas share pain points and stand side by side in the mission to find ways to make training better.

EVALS would like to thank all involved parties for the opportunity, passion, and commitment to finding successful solutions for Public Safety.
