EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In a joint exercise, the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA, together with local law enforcement agencies, took part in a simulation exercise to test emergency preparedness in the event of a large-scale threat. NC4's E Team® solution was at the forefront of this exercise, providing comprehensive, real-time situational awareness to assist emergency responders.
Agencies are increasingly turning to technology to communicate more effectively during disasters and to ensure the safety and protection of citizens. The New Jersey State Police (NJSP) has an existing relationship with NC4® and activated the E Team software during the Operation Gotham Shield exercise.
"It is important for agencies to run simulations and exercises to help better prepare for and prevent threats. E Team helps us capture, analyze, and disseminate data and information rapidly and accurately to all impacted organizations. This information, and the ability to communicate quickly with other government agencies helps give our emergency and first responders greater situational awareness, which ultimately results in more lives saved," said Laura Connolly, Public Information Officer at New Jersey State Police Office of Emergency Management.
With large scale threats, like the one simulated in operation Gotham Shield, it's imperative for local and federal agencies and organizations to communicate and share information in real-time with accuracy. Leveraging strong technological solutions creates efficiencies that help government and law enforcement agencies work smarter. E Team is the leading emergency management solution with proven, real world experience to enable communication and collaboration among jurisdictions preparing for and responding to emergencies.
