Citizens depend on 9-1-1 for fast, reliable response in times of crisis. Lives depend on the ability of government to deploy and respond to emergencies quickly and reliably. However, the speed with which help comes and the information first responders have when they arrive on the scene has traditionally been impacted by the limitations of technology. This Government Technology case study takes a look at Tennessee, and how its new IP-based emergency response network will help dispatchers and responders assess situations and execute optimal plans of action at the rapid pace that emergencies require making 9-1-1 faster, smarter and safer.
