Services that avail of volunteers, such as firefighters, as well as Civil Protection and medical services use ASTRID paging to notify their teams when an incident occurs. ASTRID's paging service allows users to quickly send and receive alert messages anywhere in Belgium. The ASTRID paging network offers maximum indoor coverage.
Pages can be sent using an alarm terminal, radio or telephone. Provincial control rooms also play an important role in the emergency alert process by sending electronic messages to alarm terminals in the rescue station, which are then relayed to staff on their pagers.
