Smartcities & emergency services – All you need to know!

New EENA Operations document now available


Smartcities & emergency services – All you need to know!

 

 

 

 

EENA is happy to announce the publication of the “Smartcities & emergency services” document by the EENA Operations Committee.

 

 

 

 

 

Emergency services need to play an important role in the definition of Smartcities because these services are responsible not only for helping people in critical situations, but also for predicting risks.

Take a look at the publication and read about the advantages of living in a Smartcity, examples of what it means from the emergency services point of view, what public safety can benefit from, as well as EENA recommendations for the way forward.

EENA would like to thank Pablo Gutiérrez Astilleros (Telefonica Spain), EENA Operations Committee Vice-Chair, for his time and excellent contributions to this document.
