Improving Public Safety and Situational Awareness at Super Bowl XLVII
and 2013 Mardi Gras.
As national and international events become bigger and more complex, agencies are presented with challenges to secure and protect the public from potential outbreaks, threats or danger. FirstWatch Solutions, Inc. has become a key component for Public Safety/Health, local DHS and Office of Emergency Preparedness officials. Through real-time monitoring and analysis of data coming into a city’s 911 centers, FirstWatch has been successfully deployed in major cities to both track and map potential threats surrounding special events. Deployments include the U.S. Open, NCAA Final Four, APEC, National Governor’s Conference, G8 summit, the Democratic and Republication National Conventions, and most recently Super Bowl XLVII and the 2013 Mardi Gras.
