The approach of Labor Day means summer is coming to a close.
With any long weekend, especially one that is seen as the “last hurrah” of the season, we can expect an uptick in travel.
Due to the expected travel, public safety officials will be on high alert. How can municipalities ensure that their communities are safe with increases in traffic and people, able to respond rapidly to any emerging crises?
Operations centers for public safety
Intelligence centers can greatly aid public safety for their communities. These operations centers provide real-time situational awareness, combining data from all types of sources like traffic cameras and social media alerts. That way, when a situation arises, operators can analyze and respond as quickly as possible.
When it comes to public safety, seconds can make a difference, and operations centers ensure a prompt response when it’s needed most.
Operators within a public safety operations center must be able to manage multiple moving parts. They need to gather and share critical information, coordinate response initiatives, and manage personnel across various departments. Large video walls display real-time data from every relevant source so it’s visible to everyone working in the room. If desired, the audio-visual setup can also share data with other relevant locations such as an adjacent conference area or on site representatives, assisting in response coordination.
Emergency operations center furniture solutions used can also contribute to efficiency. Space design and furniture arrangements should enable coordination between operators and allow a clear view to the video wall for everyone in the room.
Because an operations center’s tasks are critical, it is important to work with an emergency operations center designer that can recommend the most reliable products so your installation lasts through 24/7 use performing critical tasks.
