On-Demand Webinar: Strategic Planning for Public Safety Agencies

In today’s evolving emergency communications environment, public safety agencies are often expected to do more with fewer resources–smaller budgets and fewer people. This reality means that strategic planning, and determining how best to leverage the available resources, is more crucial than ever before. In this webinar, MCP subject-matter experts Chris Kelly and Bonnie Maney discuss the benefits of strategic planning for public safety agencies and different approaches to development.

On-Demand Webinar: The Aging PSAP - Making the Case for a New Facility

Public safety answering points (PSAPs) and emergency operations centers (EOCs) must provide security and peace of mind for the communities and first responders they serve. Unfortunately, many of today’s mission-critical facilities are aging, unable to accommodate the needs of growing communities and outfitted with technology that is reaching end-of-life. With limited budgets and resources, how do agencies and public safety leaders make the case for a facility upgrade?

On-Demand Webinar: Integrating Broadband & NG911 Into ECCs

As public safety continues to move toward the implementation of next generation 911 (NG911) and public safety broadband networks, like FirstNet from AT&T, agencies need to seriously consider the implications of these new technologies for the emergency communications center (ECC). More importantly, agencies need to understand how the two will work together and why interoperability of these technologies is crucial to successfully improving emergency response.

This on-demand webinar discusses how public safety broadband networks and NG911 need to work together and the operational impact these technologies will have on the ECC.
