AtHoc Plots Out the Future Landscape of Emergency Communications


It’s difficult to keep up at times. There are so many evolving innovations saturating our world that keeping abreast of the changing currents can be overwhelming. That’s why it’s encouraging to see AtHoc take an authoritative step in educating people.

Trends in technology are often fueled by innovation. In turn, those trends propel our legislation. Comprehensive implementation is hard to navigate until that legislation is in place. Therefore, agencies and corporations may find it hard to muddle through the hows and whats, even when the whys are abundantly clear. Meanwhile, the government is just beginning to catch up with the next generation infrastructures available in public safety and emergency response. This year could prove to be that transitional year where innovation, technology, and legislation collide.

It’s time to figure out how all the pieces fit: how can agencies prepare for the innovations where they’re still so fresh on the market. AtHoc offers some answers. They provide a schematic detailing how to ensure one’s agency, corporation, or government entity is prepared and poised to act. AtHoc covers all the bases from basic communication, security, networking, and device integration. They leave no technological stone unturned in their effort to advocate for a more informed and primed populace.

BlackBerry’s AtHoc is growing quickly as more and more large-scale agencies adopt the communication system into their incident management plans. As they continue to foster a positive dialogue about emergency management and public safety, they allow both the experienced end-user and novice tech geek to more fully understand the importance of continued, comprehensive crisis communication.
