Village of Pleasant Prairie

Village of Pleasant Prairie keeps roads clear of snow with automated calls to plow drivers

Village of Pleasant Prairie uses WIN-911 and Wonderware InTouch HMI to notify snow plow drivers of inclement weather situations

Goals

  • Simplify the calling process during inclement winter weather
  • Visualize call logs and driver availability
  • Eliminate discrepancies in call records

Challenges

  • The foreman alone was responsible for reaching out to each driver at the time
  • Focusing on phone calls took attention away from overall plowing procedures

Results

  • WIN-911 software filters, escalates, and routes alarms to appropriate personnel and devices
  • By pressing a callout button, available drivers are automatically notified to man their plows
  • The foreman is able to focus entirely on monitoring operations to verify road safety
