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 populations. 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 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; or oil and gas spills can all have catastrophic consequences to the people and infrastructure 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.
