Every year, public safety leaders witness new security concerns, from growing rates of gun violence to increasingly periodic and destructive natural disasters. To restrict these issues, local officials and first responders will have to fabricate comprehensive, far-sighted safety plans, accepting new and groundbreaking solutions.
Besides, public safety tools have experienced a technological metamorphosis in recent years, and these are expected to continue to influence emergency response moving forward. Technologies like IP security cameras will also be utilized more than regular CCTV cameras. It is a standalone unit with its own IP address and demands only a network connection to transmit and receive image data. For safety managers, this tool offers higher-quality video footage, and it is also capable of accessing footage from any location. On the other hand, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), or drones, have already started to be used for public safety purposes across the United States, delivering defibrillators, medications, food or water, and other critical supplies during a natural disaster or other emergencies. Likewise, AI technology has the ability to fundamentally change the first response. For emergency medical services, AI provides the power to screen for early detection of cardiac arrest incidents. If CPR is administered within the first 5 minutes, the chance of survival increases by 45 percent, so the technology can be a real lifesaver. Firefighters will benefit from the technology as well - AI for firefighters will help collect and analyze on-scene data, such as temperature, gases, and other hazardous environmental factors. These technological advancements will impact the public safety arena, and organizations must embrace these technologies to stay relevant in the market.
