In the aftermath of a major disaster, whether natural or man-made, first responders must act quickly in establishing command presence, resource control, and communication interoperability. This capability is equally important for agencies tasked with maintaining public safety at large-scale events and organizations charged with a quick response to non-emergent incidents. That is where Tacticomm comes in.
What is Tacticomm?
Tacticomm is Howard’s new mobile command and communications vehicle for addressing the burgeoning needs associated with emergency response and public safety management. It provides solutions suitable for small-scale daily operational activities and major mobilizations alike. Tacticomm has everything you need for strategic planning and incident response—anytime, anywhere. From managing response and recovery operations during a crisis to overseeing public safety at a sporting or other large-scale public event, maintaining effective communication that contributes to swift, decisive action between team members and collaborative groups is essential. Support organizations rely heavily on communications and networking on every level to accomplish their goals, and Tacticomm is their means to that end.
Tacticomm’s key communication feature, and the reason it is so effective, is INTEROPERABILITY. In its simplest terms, interoperability in communication is the ability of two or more agencies to exchange information (be it voice, data, images, or video), whenever, and wherever it is needed, even when different communication or information systems are involved. Tacticomm can provide interoperability during incidents or events requiring communication between diverse organizations using different radios or frequencies.
Tacticomm goes a step further by offering COMPLETE mobile communication packages that include lights, sirens, cameras, mobile computing devices, fully equipped Command Vehicles, GPS tracking, installations, and more. Tacticomm’s public safety management solutions are made available to government agencies including police, fire, public transit, and EMS departments.
What can Tacticomm do for you?
High profile events test the ability of emergency service organizations to mount well-coordinated responses. The ability to respond quickly, move rapidly, and communicate effectively in any given situation determines, at the very least, your level of success. During more serious crises, it can mean the difference between life and death. For those times, emergency preparedness cannot be overemphasized and Tacticomm can help.
Tacticomm gives you the ability to rapidly deploy a reliable mobile communications architecture—one with the flexibility needed to establish and maintain necessary inter-agency connections in any event and under any conditions. And, the Tacticomm solution is particularly adaptable to incidents involving multi-jurisdictional or multi-disciplinary responses. Whether you’re tasked with maintaining public safety at high profile, public events or managing response and recovery operations during a crisis, Tacticomm delivers.
