Gov CIO Outlook | Wednesday, August 05, 2020

Technological advancements mean that emergency response tactics will constantly be evolved.

FREMONT, CA: With the increase in crises across the United States, technology has a significant role to play in improving emergency management departments across the country. Yet, many emergency management systems operate on legacy systems. As a result, people in need are not able to share their needs or send messages to responders, making emergency communication and resource allocation more complex and costly. Realizing this, government entities are making strides in using various technologies to improve emergency response operations. Technologies present a greater opportunity to make emergency management systems more intelligent and effective.

Industry and government leaders today are discussing how artificial intelligence can change the way they work. In emergency management, AI can help predict, evaluate, and simulate incidents to enhance response times and optimize resource dispatch processes. The artificial intelligence solution can help the department prioritize and respond more effectively to the thousands of requests they receive annually, reportedly bettering emergency response times for the department.

• Internet of Things

Internet of Things refers to a network of physical objects mounted with sensors and software to collect data and communicate with each other. In emergency management, IoT can be used to improve data collection from the physical environment and rapidly communicate this data to different departments. The obstruction of emergency response to reach locations can be tackled with the help of IoT. These devices placed in such remote locations can broadcast signals and communicate critical incidents.

• Cloud Technology

The use of cloud technology is a major trend in emergency management. Cloud-based applications can offer various benefits to emergency response teams and emergency management too. Cloud can make it easier to collect and share data and make communication and collaboration much easier. A secure cloud solution can continue to run, even when there is limited infrastructure because tools and data are stored away from the disaster zone. The cloud can help with the use of information too.
