Safety for all of us means working together. That's interoperability.
Public Safety Communications Innovations: Advancing Interoperability in the Era of Transformation.
Held on December 12, 2018
More than ever, public safety depends on interoperability. Safety for all of us means working together. When emergency strikes, it shouldn't matter what network you're using - all that matters is making connections. EMTs. Firefighters. Law enforcement officials. They all need to communicate seamlessly, regardless of what network they're on. That's interoperability.
The critical need for interoper-ability in emergency response.
