Everything happens in a blur during an emergency, so reconstructing a coherent chain of events is no easy task.
One ace up investigators’ sleeve could be using an incident reconstruction system, which pieces together snippets of information to eliminate distracting events or actions and help determine what happened.
With robust incident reconstruction solutions, center managers can use 911 recordings to get to the bottom of unresolved incidences and enhance public safety.
How Safety Recording Systems Help Reconstruct Incidents Like 911 Calls
At the heart of the public safety centers sits the 911 recording system, tasked with receiving, recording, and processing distress calls.
Emergency calls could be through phone, text, 911 radio, or video recording and could take place through several channels like smartphones, radio, VoIP, or PBX.
The emergency recording solution documents the communications between the caller and the dispatcher in real-time.
An emergency responder must answer the calls swiftly and be quick-thinking enough to ask the right questions to facilitate the safety recording system’s automated functionality to reconstruct the incident.
Emergency dispatchers must be alert when they are handling life-and-death situations, callers might be too distressed to recall what they said. Therefore, they must guide the caller into divulging helpful information.
Doing so aids the 911 recording system to capture, save, and reconstruct their interactions from diverse channels and allows easily accessible retrieval, export, and solving of complex events from the recordings.
