Project Goal

Leveraging a strong partnership between Police, Fire, Dispatch, Transportation Engineering, IT and a local school district, the City of Frisco brought a vision for Situation Awareness for Emergency Response (SAFER) into being through the in-house development of a geospatial platform. Since its initial implementation in 2009, SAFER has grown into a critical business application that utilizes real time data from nearly 30 integrated systems. These include (not limited to): 9-1-1 caller locations, RapidSOS, Vehicle and Motorola Radio GPS locations, Waze incidents and road closures, live-video feeds, Weather Conditions, Hazmat Plumes, HERE.com, building floor plans and the location of critical infrastructure.
