White Paper Published By: Cisco

Type:  White Paper
Length:  18 pages

According to the United Nations, on average, more than 200 million people were affected and more than 70,000 were killed by natural disasters annually. Given the fact that one of the primary responsibilities of government is to protect the public and minimize the effects of such calamities, citizens now demand that public-sector safety organizations be proactive, and respond promptly and effectively to all types of crisis situations, including catastrophes, terror events, and threats to critical infrastructure.

To effectively respond to these challenges, public safety agencies must be able to rely on secure networks with integrated voice, video, and data capabilities. With these networks and their associated assets, agencies can obtain more timely and accurate information, enhancing situational awareness and improving response times. Cisco and our partners can help agencies obtain secure networks, which help:
Reduce time between incident detection and response
Empower field personnel to make decisions based on all available information
Disseminate the right information to the right people at the right time
