Critical Communications Discussed in Helsinki This Month
Every day across the globe, police firefighters, EMTs and other public safety and emergency personnel work to respond efficiently to unexpected events as they happen. Coordination of resources during these events can help save lives. Effective, reliable communication between the various public safety organizations, on land, in the sea and air, for example, is an important capability in the era of new technologies such as 5G.
According to a recent Forbes article highlighting a survey on public safety, “In an emergency situation, real-time collaboration can speed response, increase situational awareness and improve responder safety. Respondents cited barriers to information sharing and collaboration include lack of technology (44%), lack of funding and resources (41%) and unwillingness from departments/agencies (36%).”
