Building a Safer City: The Practical Power of Disruptive Technologies

World Trade Center

A more connected city is a safer city. We are seeing a trend within many of our public safety customers who are choosing to regionalize their police, fire and, EMS dispatch efforts and operations. But for a city to truly become a smart city, it needs to connect ICT systems, training, and planning beyond those agencies. If you’re looking to lead your community in becoming a safe and connected city, here are some of the questions you should be asking yourself:

  • How can public safety agencies, who are already professionals at protecting and serving the community, help lead their cities in a coordinated and collaborative approach?
  • How can public safety agencies ensure the entire city works toward the same goals of keeping citizens and infrastructure safe?
  • How do first responders share intelligence with other city organizations and stakeholders like utility companies, municipal government agencies, and transportation departments?

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure believes that a smarter and safer city is shaped by using integrated software solutions and disruptive technology. The transformative power of technology in public safety agencies, utility companies, and transportation departments provides:

  • Improved Operations – Technology bridges the communication gap, allowing city entities the ability to work together in a more efficient and effective manner.
  • Coordinated Action – Instead of everyone working on their own projects using siloed technology solutions, an integrated approach allows for action to be planned, coordinated, and approved as a group.
  • City-wide Cooperation – If all city groups communicate within a single, integrated technology solution, there is a consistent version of events and steps to ensure safety, which creates a single version of the truth.
  • Stakeholder Engagement – Since everyone within the city is involved in making it a smarter and safer place to live, you have more buy-in from each stakeholder. This ensures everyone is working toward the same goals.

Join our partnered webinar with Frost & Sullivan to learn more about the transformative power of advanced solutions that integrate disparate IT systems, streamline response times, and protect critical infrastructure in the connected city of the near-future. On Tuesday, May 1st at 2 p.m.  EST we will discuss real-world examples and examine emerging trends and technologies.
