In the immediate aftermath of the World Trade Center attack in 2001 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005, it was clear that the greatest obstacle to ensuring the safety of the public was not a lack of will or courage on the part of our first responders, nor a shortage of the proper equipment, but the inability to obtain reliable and accurate information at the moment it was needed.
Struggling through the chaos following these events, firefighters, police, and other emergency responders were not able to access or share critical data—even basic information such as building floor plans, emergency pre-plans, and responder locations. The result was a breakdown in coordinated response. Today, following recent tragic events such as Sandy Hook, the Aurora movie theater shooting, and the Boston Marathon bombing, it is clear that the same factors continue to impact response.
The GEOcommand suite of technologies addresses these crippling information gaps with an innovative turnkey solution. This set of valuable tools is designed for everyday use: scaling seamlessly from ordinary incidents to multi-agency mass response.
Our software ensures that first responders can provide emergency services efficiently, safely, and effectively—whether it’s a local or mutual aid response—without interrupting or impacting day-to-day operations. But GEOcommand software isn’t just a tool for everyday response or day-to-day mutual aid response. First responders can use our products during large-scale responses as well.
We are dedicated to offering a scalable, cost-effective interoperability solution, providing first responders vital information when they need it most.
