Video Collaboration Solutions for Emergency Management

Posted by Chessie Skates on Apr 22, 2014 8:53:00 AM

Law enforcement and emergency services crews have substantial synchronization, field communication and training requirements. Those needs require flawless communication and sharing of detailed information, such as charts, maps, building diagrams, satellite images, surveillance camera footage, recordings and event forensic evidence.

The Polycom RealPresence Platform provides secure, universal, video collaboration. The collaboration capabilities offer realistic, interactive communication between crews that are frequently separated by distance.  Organizations can respond quickly to emergency situations and share field visuals with government officials positioned in situation rooms or command and control centers when using the RealPresence Platform.

Government agencies are progressively developing emergency preparation programs that depend on voice and video conferencing, recording and streaming as part of their electronic learning initiatives. They find this method helps them save considerable costs and quickly educates first responders on the understanding and skills they need during response, recovery and rebuilding situations.

Employing Polycom solutions for emergency management, government organizations find they can:

  • Diminish costs and save crucial time – Distribute training programs to rapidly improve knowledge and critical skills while responding to emergencies more effectively through unified collaboration.
  • Enhance emergency communications – Promptly and accurately evaluate the situation and produce a real-time shared operational picture from emergency operations and command centers.
  • Structure an effective, corresponding response – Provide immediate access to information and people that supports emergency responders improve how they collaborate and share information.
  • Improve decision making – Emergency responders can confidently implement operational plans and manage disaster situations due to their access to intelligence information and decision makers.
