The city of Columbus, Ohio, has selected Intergraph public safety emergency incident response management solutions to streamline police, fire and EMS response in the state's largest and most populous city.
Emergency responders will utilize Intergraph's integrated computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and mobile dispatch technologies to share multiagency information in order to better serve the capital city's more than 700,000 residents. The solutions will enable the City of Columbus Department of Public Safety Communications Center, as well as the Columbus Division of Police and Division of Fire and EMS personnel, to share a common operational picture; make faster, more strategic decisions; and distribute information when responding to incidents in the 212-square-mile jurisdiction.
City and public safety decision-makers selected Intergraph's integrated emergency incident response and records management solutions for their reliability, scalability and ease-of-use. Additionally, the selection committee felt that the Intergraph system was suited to meet their needs today and in the future.
