Emergency services and law enforcement teams have significant synchronization, field communication and training needs. Those needs require crystal-clear communication and sharing of detailed information, such as maps, charts, building schematics, satellite images, surveillance camera footage, recordings and event forensic evidence.
The Polycom RealPresence Platform offers universal, secure, video collaboration. The collaboration experience provides lifelike, interactive communication between teams that are often separated by distance. By using the RealPresence Platform, organizations can rapidly respond to emergency situations and share field visuals with government officials located in situation rooms or command and control centers.
As part of their electronic learning initiatives, government agencies are increasingly developing emergency preparedness programs that rely on voice and video conferencing, recording and streaming. They find this approach helps them save substantial costs and quickly educate first responders on the knowledge and skills they need during response, recovery and reconstruction situations.
Using Polycom solutions for emergency management, government organizations find they can:
- Reduce costs and save precious time – Distribute training programs to quickly hone knowledge and essential skills and respond to emergencies more efficiently through unified collaboration.
- Improve emergency communications – Rapidly and accurately assess the situation and produce a real-time common operational picture from emergency operations and command centers.
- Structure an efficient, coordinated response – Provide instant access to people and information that helps emergency responders improve how they coordinate and share information.
- Enhance decision making – Emergency responders can confidently execute operational plans and manage crisis situations because of their access to intelligence information and decision makers.
