5G, the next-generation mobile network, is set to roll out worldwide, opening the door to a modernisation of emergency services. When it comes to emergency response, integration and connectivity are among the many possibilities that 5G can bring in the next years.

This way, we could see police, paramedics and firefighters integrating their operations in the same platform, thus making their work faster and more efficient. But 5G’ s potential for connectivity could also allow for effective communication throughout the emergency response chain, from offering instant streaming of information from the emergency site to supporting responders in the control room, on the frontline and at the device level.
