Mapping and location company, the ITS (UK) member HERE Technologies, is working with Motorola Solutions to equip emergency services responders with detailed venue maps which they say will give enhanced situational awareness.
Motorola Solutions’ CommandCentral Aware intelligence software, used by public safety command centres, integrates HERE Technologies’ venue maps to guide first responders to the right locations, “while adapting to dynamic events in real-time”.
They say before entering a building, police, fire and EMS personnel can automatically access the latest authorised venue map of the building to know the best entrance and fastest route to someone in need. Venue maps also include the locations of fire extinguishers, defibrillators, and medical kits on premise for quick access.
“Emergency responders rely on real-time and accurate information for enhanced situational awareness and safety,” said Jim Leflar, Venues Marketplace manager at HERE. “We are proud to work with Motorola Solutions in providing the public safety community with a layer of real-time information that will aid in the speed and safety of first responders on duty.”
