Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division announced the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, Germany, has selected HxGN OnCall solutions to modernize emergency dispatch operations and analysis for the city’s fire and police departments. The modernization, part of Hamburg’s PERLE program (Programm Erneuerung Leitstellen von Feuerwehr und Polizei), will bring cutting-edge technologies to Germany’s second largest city.
Hexagon’s industry-leading computer-aided dispatch (CAD) solution, HxGN OnCall Dispatch, is expected to greatly improve collaboration between fire brigades and police authorities, enabling faster and more efficient emergency response for the city’s 1.8 million residents.
Hamburg also selected the HxGN OnCall Analytics data visualization and analytics tool. OnCall Analytics will create easy-to-understand reports and performance analyses, enabling the city to better evaluate and optimize allocation of police and fire brigade resources.
“As a web-based solution, HxGN OnCall is a major step forward in the modernization of fire brigade and police command and control technology,” said Andreas Czerwinski, M.A. police director and program manager of the Ministry of the Interior and Sport of the City of Hamburg. “These advanced tools are intended to facilitate the work in the control centers and, as a result, make Hamburg an even safer place to live and work.”
