Public safety answering points (PSAPs), 911 centers, Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs), and other public safety facilities have unique complexities—extremely stringent security and safety requirements and scalability and continuity of operations needs—to name a few. If your organization is planning a facility upgrade or expansion in the near future, this is a can't miss session that will present strategies for optimizing the functional use of space to achieve operational integrity; and how you can achieve resiliency in the face of any natural and manmade threats your facility may face.
Public safety facility discussion topics include:
- Case studies in technology, audio/visual and systems survivability from natural and manmade threats
- Overview of the applicable codes and best practices related to mission critical facilities
- Master planning, pre-design and design methods that public safety subject matter experts and architects utilize
- How specialized technology requirements impact space programming, building systems and design
