Governments at all levels face a multitude of social, political, economic and environmental issues. National security, public safety, a well-functioning society and a healthy economy are all top-priorities for governments around the world to ensure the well-being of their population. We only need to look at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to understand that this seemingly simple objective comes with highly complex problems to solve for nations and its citizens.
Natural disasters, accidental and human-made catastrophes, and overall public safety and security, including public health and medical response, are all areas where preparation and response time is highly critical. There is little margin for error when it comes to saving lives. Disasters such as hurricanes, floods and earthquakes; the release of toxic chemicals and biological contaminations; oil and gas spills; and of course, global pandemics such as COVID-19, can all have catastrophic consequences to the people, infrastructure and environment of the affected region. These emergencies require well-coordinated actions to be taken within and between government agencies, defence forces, health agencies and emergency management organizations at the regional, national and often at the international level.
CAE's comprehensive portfolio of training solutions, single/national synthetic environments, and operational support solutions can help government and agencies to better prepare to face dire situations and recover in the event of a disaster.
