An interesting article was published two years ago in the Partner Alliance for Safer Schools that highlighted new technologies that can enhance school safety. According to the article, these include thermal imaging, passive body scanners, facial recognition, vape detection, and gunshot detection. Let’s examine these out of order. [...]

Automatic Emergency Response Communication and Public Safety

Caliber Public Safety remains at the forefront of technological development. Among these innovations is one that will become increasingly prominent in coming years, which is automatic communication and alerting. There are many instances in which it is desirable to contact emergency support personnel or other first responders, but doing so by voice, or directly as the victim, is not possible. Those in distress may be unable to call, either because they are under duress or too [...]

First Responders and Technology

Last year, a public safety software company highlighted the need for first response personnel to be supported by cutting edge technology. “When it comes to emergency response measures, every second counts,” they wrote. “People in trouble rely on first responders to step in and alleviate the situation — whether it’s a medical emergency, fire, or any other dire event. In order for emergency workers to efficiently take care of people, they need a reliable, technical solution [...]

Cloud and Web-Based Computer-Aided Dispatch

We’ve all learned powerful lessons in the last few years, particularly where emergency response is concerned. During the pandemic, cloud and web-based Computer-Aided Dispatch technology allowed public safety personnel to work from home. Specifically, dispatchers were able to continue doing their work even though there was danger in gathering in person at 911 dispatch centers. According to TheBigRedGuide.com, “the trend toward working from home has accelerated. New technologies are now making it possible for 911 dispatchers [...]

Improved GPS Tracking and 911 Dispatch

It is a nightmare scenario for first-responders and emergency dispatch personnel: A caller phones, but is using a wireless phone, so his or her location cannot be pinpointed. The caller is distracted or in distress; they either don’t know where they are, exactly, or they cannot describe it. It may even be the case that the call ends abruptly before they can describe their location. In all those scenarios, it is that much harder to get [...]
