South Metro Fire has decided to upgrade station alerting and move forward with the First-In system made by Westnet. On Feb 6th "Lola" the computer voice made by Locution will no longer be used and a new male voice will be. Lola was actually thousands of voice files recorded by a real person and strung together by computer. The new system will simply be text to speech so pronunciation may be incorrect for a while. The new voice is sometimes being tested on MetCom Ops 7 or Ops 15 for anyone interested.
