What you don’t know can put lives at risk. When you look at your dispatch operations, how aware are you of what happens in the field once you deploy first responders? While you may know where vehicles are through AVL and perhaps traffic conditions provided through your CAD solution, nearly all other updates are limited to traditional radio communications. This can often result in delayed or incomplete updates from responding units, which can lead to compromised first responder safety and even the less-than-optimal deployment of exceedingly limited resources. For far too long this has, unfortunately, become accepted as the status quo in today’s communications centers, but with advances in technology, this no longer has to be the case.
Join Donno Cole, veteran dispatcher and public safety systems expert with over 25 years of experience, as he walks through the often overlooked challenges of current CAD systems and how harnessing the signals generated by first responders can drive greater situational awareness, increased officer safety and smart resources deployment.
