Control Room Operators are under time pressure to question emergency callers to ascertain what is wrong, where they are, who they are and who is in danger in order to dispatch the right resources.

Live footage offers instant ‘on-scene eyes’ to the operators, helping them assess the scenario and better select the appropriate resources to dispatch to the incident. They can also provide more qualified information to partner agencies to help manage the incident more effectively.

With no app required, the service enables a caller with a smartphone to stream live footage, direct from their phone’s camera, into the Emergency Service control room. This provides vital live footage, together, with the caller’s location GPS coordinates, which allows operators to make more informed decisions on mobilising the right resources.

The information provided, supplementing that which was initially taken from the emergency voice call, can provide further INSIGHT to the responders helping them to deliver the appropriate RESPONSE while ensuring the SAFETY of both themselves and the public. All the media is recorded securely as potential evidence for further investigation. The service is securely hosted and scalable for use in any organization.
