Last week, we made a webinar in collaboration with the All-Hazards Incident Management Teams Association. The session provided an overview about emergency communications and related technologies adapted for Incident Management Teams.
We addressed three main topics:
Interoperability: Communicate with different public safety agencies & private companies with different equipment. What are the different levels of radio interoperability for first responders according to the homeland security and which interoperability solution should be implemented for local, state and federal agencies.
Autonomy: Communicate no matter what happens. You need to be fully independent with your communication needs, you can't rely on infrastructures. What equipment do you need to have a complete autonomy of communication operations. This way you can ensure continuity of operations no matter what.
Ease of Use: Flexible and easy-to-use equipment. Do you really know what you should consider to scale the ease of use and flexibility? Find out what are the 7-abilities to ease of use.
We all know that we need communications in events such as Harvey to coordinate emergency response efforts. However, how do we do that when infrastructures are down and there's no power?
Watch this webinar to learn how to overcome these communications challenges and what capacities your communication equipment should have to be effective on the ground at all times.
