Jordan Roth is a graduate of Pittsburgh Technical Institute and he graduated with an Associates of Science degree, with a concentration in Network Administration. Jordan is our primary IT/Network specialist for 2nd Alarm Media and Wheeling’s Bravest online. Jordan’s specialty is the back-end of WordPress websites and configuring the security and integrity of the websites. Jordan is a resident of Wheeling, WV and owns WheelingsBravest.com. He runs online fire/police dispatch out of his house 24/7 through Broadcastify.com. He has the ability to record all major fire and police incidents on the computer so WheelingsBravest.com can post the fire-ground audio from a major incident the next day for review. This is beneficial to the firefighters for training purposes and to educate others as well. Most recently, Jordan programmed a Fire Alert program called FTO (Fire Tone Out) that listens to the scanner and when certain “structure fire tones” are used by the dispatchers, records a 30 second audio mp3 file of the initial dispatch (with the address of the fire, the companies responding) and sends it out to users via email and text messaging. This makes it easy for fire photographers and news reporters and any interested parties to receive information about when there is a structure fire in Wheeling.
