"Excellent training and exposure to emerging technology"

At APCO’s Envision training event this week in Tampa, Florida, attendees learned about cybersecurity, Next Generation 9-1-1, emergency alerting, 9-1-1 location accuracy and the big-picture challenges facing emergency communications centers with changes in technology. APCO senior staff shared ideas related to training, operations and managing new technologies that attendees could apply to their jobs. The audience, consisting of 9-1-1, information technology and industry professionals, contributed to a robust discussion about these critical topics and the future of emergency communications.
