Valley Center, CA – In a crucial effort to enhance its Emergency Preparedness and Communication Strategies, the San Pasqual Mission Band of Indians Reservation in Southern California has forged a strategic partnership with HQE Systems, Inc. (HQE) to design, develop and deploy the highly advanced SiRcom Outdoor Warning Siren solution. This collaboration is a testament to the reservation’s commitment to augment their mass notification and emergency communications, recognizing the unique challenges posed by its geographical location, which puts its thriving indigenous Kumeyaay Community at risk due to the rugged terrain, at times of emergency.

HQE’s custom-built outdoor warning solution represents the culmination of meticulous design and innovative engineering, specifically tailored to overcome crisis management obstacles, particularly those frequently encountered during emergencies, such as power loss and the absence of cellular/internet signals during wildfires. These life-threatening challenges often obstruct the crucial flow of information to emergency teams and the community in need. However, HQE’s cutting-edge outdoor siren solution by SiRcom, was designed with a versatile range of smart built-in features, that include an impressive up to 30-day extended backup power capability and a plethora of communication modalities, such as Satellite, Radio, Cellular, IP, Secure Mesh, LoRaWAN, and SAFE Network Zones. This siren solution ensures real-time detection, swift alerts, and seamless communication, even in the harshest and most adverse conditions.
