PUBLIC SAFETY AGENCIES ARE ON A PERPETUAL QUEST TO ENHANCE THEIR CRITICAL RESPONSE TO ROUTINE OR EMERGENCY EVENTS THAT OCCUR WITHIN THEIR JURISDICTIONS.
The shift from landline to wireless smartphones has left emergency services unable to locate callers accurately or take advantage of the new phone’s advanced technology such as chat, video, or GPS. Inefficiencies in telecommunications infrastructure mean that in the event of a large-scale emergency, existing cellular networks fail due to the massive spike in traffic.
The existing 911 systems (or regional equivalents) are suffering from overwhelming numbers of false reporting along with an unreliable locating system. These two factors represent the most significant drain on human and technological resources for an emergency response system. By reducing or even eliminating responses to falsely reported events, misappropriated funds can be put back on track. Decreasing false reports save time, money, resources, and lives.
