Today almost 5,000 9-1-1 centers have the ability to receive real-time information from connected devices, buildings and medical databases. With access to valuable information such as location and supplemental emergency data automatically delivered to their screens, dispatchers and field responders are empowered with unprecedented situational awareness and have the opportunity to provide an expedited, data-driven, and personalized emergency response.

This session will share how public safety leaders across the country are utilizing life-saving data from sources such as Apple, Google, Uber, MedicAlert, and more to enhance emergency response and allocate resources more effectively. 9-1-1 professionals will leave with a clearer understanding of how to receive, train for and utilize this life-saving data. NG911 is no longer the next generation, it is now!

Command and dispatch centers are central to every critical communications system where quickly dispatching the appropriate first responders is of paramount importance. Key to command center operations is having a good understanding of the full operational picture using multiple data sources. We however live in an interconnected world with a plethora of data coming to us from different angles, and these centers are not immune to this challenge of data overload. With an increased adoption of broadband technology and the gradual move to NG9-1-1, the sheer volume of data coming to command centers is almost through the roof.

This Tech Talk provides an overview of L3Harris’ new situational awareness solution that helps dispatchers and command center leaders effectively manage this dynamic data-rich environment. This solution provides a synchronized, real-time common operational picture that delivers intelligence to drive faster decisions, increased efficiency, and enhanced public safety.
