In state of emergency, coordination of the Intervention teams is key to minimize loss of lives and assets
Whether responding to an emergency or everyday service situation, the amount of coordination required between responders – be it evacuating a building on fire or trying to restore order after a disaster – requires investment in quality mobile communications systems.
Imagine a fire started in a building which is close a network of gas pipes fueling a whole neighborhood. When the fire intervention team will get immediate information from utility company about the location of the gas pipes, not only will they avoid further disaster unfolding but will allow the gas service to be restored much faster.
Local public safety departments must create and should be able to access dedicated public safety networks with “priority and pre-emption” status every day of the year – for regular police, fire and EMS response, and when tackling other natural disasters. When regular networks go down, it is critical to keep law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) connected to one another.
This is why it is your responsibility – as the agency lead, police or fire chief, IT director, field technician supervisor or perhaps procurement official – to ensure that every “responder” you dispatch to a call will have a mobile computer that will work no matter what and will be connected with operation coordinators. It is also your job to ensure your organization can stay in sync with other responding agencies, whether via voice communications or back-end data systems. Dedicated public safety networks and rugged mobile devices that are certified to work on those networks – and built to last in emergency situations – are certainly essential to any critical communications strategy.
Since public sector organizations don’t compete with one another, you can engage in, and greatly benefit from, collaborative procurement!
PUBLIC SECTOR AGENCIES SHOULD SYNC UP THEIR MOBILITY STRATEGIES TO ENSURE PROPER COORDINATION and CONTRUL DURING EMERGENCY INTERVENTIONS FOR REDUCING SAFETY HAZARDS
Just think how joint response scenarios could increase the accuracy of emergency response tracking, reduce risks and streamline command and control processes!
“Can you hear me now?” is a question a responder should never ask, especially not in the middle of an emergency response or in the wake of a natural disaster.
Forward thinking public and private organizations can jointly plan and execute infrastructure enhancements or emergency response initiatives to mitigate life-threatening situations. Such partnerships are already a norm in advanced economies where fire, police and rescue units are using this industry-first digital solution to improve coordination of on-scene resources and increase first responder accountability and incident reporting. Not only do such solutions help the rescue efforts, but also save important costs by ensuring better damage control and restoring order faster.
WE BRING YOU BEST IN CLASS MOBILITY SOLUTIONS WITH CERTIFIED< HIGH GRADE RUGGED EQUIPMENT TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF MANAGING INTERVENTIONS< BENEFITTING FROM ORCHESTRATED APPROACH AND SEAMLESS COMMUNICATION.
The rugged equipment is highly reliable as it is designed to work in heavily moisture conditions, dust, vibrations, extreme temperatures and provide daylight-readable touch screens.
Additional to the wearable or auto-mounted rugged equipment, a complete mobile kit for interventions can greatly benefit from the use of drones which capture video footage overhead and offer real-time guidance to mobile device-equipped responders on the ground. They are unarguably effective for public safety surveillance, comprehensive situational assessment, locating of victims and even delivering aid.
Just imagine how valuable such equipment can be mountain rescuers, forest rangers, firefighters, police chase and more, in almost daily situations when it is critical to plan and organize response immediately.
The concerted and ongoing efforts behind the scenes, far in advance of any emergency, reduce the risk of chaos and protect lives. And the communication technology decisions made today ensure that your hometown’s emergency response strategy can be executed according to plan if a situation were to arise tomorrow.
The challenge for public safety and utility organizations – as first and second responders – is to review the emergency response plans focusing on the communication strategy.
It is your joint responsability to equip the intervention teams with the right technologies on hand to make sure that you can ensure coordination and maintain communications with them and the co-participants at all times. It is up to you to ensure that communication can flow even if traditional mobile networks go down.
We help you engineer the cooperation plan that will work as it’s supposed to. We’ll bring you international experience and top of the line solutions to ensure your emergency response plans and your services work as they’re designed to when unwanted situations arise.
