Technology and public safety are merging. Cities are getting smarter every day. The next generation of 9-1-1 communication is already here, and cities and emergency responders can’t afford to wait to upgrade.
Technology Is Transforming Cities.
Integrated systems create efficiencies and enhance citizen quality of
life. Vastly improved public safety and emergency communication
systems also create big impact in 5 ways.
In an emergency, every second counts.
NG9-1-1 systems enable faster delivery to
the correct Public Safety Answering Point,
improve data sharing and call transfers, and
more accurately pinpoint locations.
1. Faster Response
We’re living in a mobile world, but legacy
9-1-1 systems are built on landline phone
networks. Today, people expect the ability
to send emergency notifications by text,
video and third-party applications.
2. User Expectation
Improved networks allow better
communication across city and county lines,
and between emergency departments —
police, firefighters, paramedics and
emergency medical technicians.
In a legacy 9-1-1 system, if the line is cut,
operations halt, which puts citizens’ and first
responders’ lives at risk. NG9-1-1 networks
are integrated, and cloud-based, for diverse
operations and system reliability.
4. System Stability
Legacy 9-1-1 centers retrofit systems with
new hardware and software to keep pace.
In Next-Gen systems, regional technology
sharing saves costs on the back-end, while
local Public Safety Answering Points remain
connected to their local residents.
5. Financial Savings
NG9-1-1 Is Already Here.
Technology and public safety are merging. Cities are getting smarter
every day. Is your 9-1-1 communication center prepared?
