Responding to a disaster and managing a crisis requires coordination between multiple government agencies at the state, local, and federal levels. Those involved in the response may be at the scene of the incident, but may also be located miles away. An Incident Commander (IC) must have immediate, continuous, and reliable communications with key parties for response coordination and real-time status updates. Decisions are only as good as information and intelligence allow.
Even with all the technology we have today, interoperable networks — optimized for using voice communications as a crisis management tool — are rarely deployed. Given the enormous value of improved crisis response— saving human life and minimizing damage to property and the environment—the question becomes: Why Not? Until recently, the answer was simple: Not available. But now, REDCOM is changing the game.
CrucialConnect by REDCOM is designed to bring together disparate networks into a single rugged, reliable, and deployable package.
