During this simulation, on-lookers can witness the high-tech future of emergency response for police, fire and EMS. In just a few short years, local police will be able to live-stream video from their cars as they respond to multi-car pile-ups or pursue eluding motorists. Paramedics will be able to instantly send photos of victim injuries and patient vitals wirelessly to trauma centers so medical staff can prepare a treatment plan long before the patient is transported. Firefighters will be able to access high speed mapping systems to quickly locate and navigate to home fires.
The demonstration will highlight new equipment and services that can be implemented with the pending build-out of state-wide broadband infrastructure dedicated to public safety services for Iowa.
The event is set for 10:30 AM at the Oran Pape State Office Bldg., 215 E. 7th Street in Des Moines.
