Nexus, taking place virtually May 26-27, will feature a panel of public safety professionals and technology providers for an inside look into how NG9-1-1 technology can benefit the response to real-life scenarios such as a motor vehicle crash, multiple tornados, hazmat, structure fire, pursuit - multiple jurisdictions and cyber-physical attack. Following a panel discussion, our partners will demonstrate each scenario using their technology and equipment, and attendees can ask questions. All scenarios are designed to analyze emergency response, comparing what a current response looks like to what will be possible with next generation technologies.
