Emergency services operate very differently across continents. Even within the same country, there can be differences in the structure, technologies and procedures of each organisation. Facing a variety of challenges, emergency response requires continuous adaptation and improvements.
In this ever-changing context, EENA has decided to launch a new series of webinars that will focus on emergency communications reforms in European countries. From February to June, emergency services will share their experience and plans with the EENA community.
The presenting emergency service that kicked-off our new series of webinars was 112 Romania, The Special Telecommunications Service (STS).
What did we learn?
- How are emergency calls handled in Romania by STS
- The main milestones in the evolution of the emergency system in Romania
- Ongoing and future projects, reforms leading to a next generation emergency communication system (NG112) in order to be compliant with the new 112 provisions in the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC)
- Upgrades in progress to meet citizens’ expectations but also to satisfy the dispatching agencies’ needs
- Status of eCall, Advanced Mobile Location, their public warning system Ro-Alert
- …and much more
