1 1SAR.Tech.NESA.2012.ppt v1.3 LAST REVISED: 24 JUL 2012 Citizens Serving Communities Technology In Emergency Services Developed as part of the National Emergency Services Curriculum Project

2 2SAR.Tech.NESA.2012.ppt v1.3 LAST REVISED: 24 JUL 2012 Citizens Serving Communities Introduction Technology in ES: A misnomer? What do we mean by Technology? In what facets of ESR can Technology be used? Current Technology and its Applications The Future of Technology in CAP Emergency Services Problems and Issues of Technology in ES

3 3SAR.Tech.NESA.2012.ppt v1.3 LAST REVISED: 24 JUL 2012 Citizens Serving Communities Technology in ES: A Misnomer? Do the methodologies of CAP Emergency Services lend themselves to the use of Technology? Can technology be useful enough to justify the time and money spent in new equipment and training? At each level, decisions must be made to determine how much time and money will be spent on technology Cost/Benefit analysis must be made

4 4SAR.Tech.NESA.2012.ppt v1.3 LAST REVISED: 24 JUL 2012 Citizens Serving Communities What do we mean by Technology Technology does not necessarily include only traditional desktop computers Technology refers to the application of new tools to make us more efficient These tools can include –Computers, Software and the Internet –Radio technology –Digital cameras –IPADS, Andriod Tablets, Smartphones –Etc.
