From 911 phone operators to law enforcement officers, each moving part of Public Safety organizations responds to emergencies and issues to keep everyone safe. But what happens when they simply do not have the resources to efficiently respond to calls?
With Public Safety organizations being at the center of constituent’s wellbeing, it is crucial that Smart City technologies are adopted to aid in emergency response. Cyclomedia’s GIS-driven solutions give organizations the data and situational awareness they need to locate callers and be prepared for potential location-specific hazards.
Expect the unexpected
When callers are unable to clearly articulate their location, significant challenges are presented for dispatchers at Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), who rely on accurate location information to coordinate emergency responses effectively. By providing PSAP personnel with detailed visual information about the caller's location, such as street views or building layouts, Cyclomedia enables dispatchers to accurately pinpoint the caller's whereabouts and relay this information to first responders.
Not only does Cyclomedia’s solution assist PSAPs in locating callers, but it also allows first responders to be prepared for unexpected hazards or obstructions once they arrive on scene. For example, if there are residents in a building with special needs who need assistance during an evacuation, imagery and data can help first responders determine whether or not their building is handicap accessible.
