Emergency Response

Using technology to save lives and preserve resources

Whether they provide medical care, enforce laws or put out fires, emergency responders are the lifeline of their communities. Delays in arriving on scene can put property and lives at risk, and even their own.

Accidents happen and there is no way to know when or where they will take place. Waiting for medical care or police support can make anyone feel helpless.

Emergency crews face challenges, too. They follow strict procedures and undergo extensive training to respond as quickly as possible, however they cannot control the path to the scene, other vehicles, red lights or distracted drivers.

First responders need every advantage they can get to help save lives. For example, with every minute it takes to arrive to a cardiac event a patients chance of surviving drops 7 to 10 percent, according to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation. A delay in responding to a fire can cause the fire to reach the flashover point, resulting in greater losses.

Getting on scene faster can literally mean the difference between life and death.

But getting there safely is just as important. Crashes with other vehicles can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Whether firefighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians or police officers, it is their job to get to an accident, natural disaster, or any other incident as soon as they can to provide care that others cannot. Opticom helps to ensure they get to emergencies quickly and safely, so they can do what they do best.
