Make Confident Technology Decisions and Ensure Sustainability
Technology plays an indispensable role in the emergency response ecosystem — it provides essential information to telecommunicators and field personnel, enables effective communications and operations and delivers faster and improved outcomes for the community.
Large-scale technology projects — such as two-way voice and data systems, call-handling equipment, computer-aided dispatch and records management systems — are complex and time-consuming undertakings. While they present significant opportunities, they create new challenges related to operations and policy, maintenance and lifecycle support.
