U.S. Marine Corps Uses Computer-Aided Dispatch to Improve Emergency Response System

Following the 2009 Fort Hood shooting, the U.S. Secretary of Defense undertook a complete study and ordered the U.S. Armed Forces to address shortfalls in their response systems, requiring implementation of E911 systems at military bases. To address the Secretary’s requirements, U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command chose to implement a comprehensive solution called the Consolidated Emergency Response System. Foundational to the solution is Hexagon’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) system.

Discover how the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command uses I/CAD to reduce response times and increase the effectiveness of law enforcement and fire and rescue personnel at 13 Marine Corps sites, including three bases outside the U.S.
