INCLUSIVE SAFETY COMMUNITIES

The Dutch Police and the Dutch Public Safety Alliance invite you to help in the challenge of matching the right citizen to the right situation emergency in order to help professionals and create a community that contributes to safety.

Find out below what you can do and how you can participate in Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, 2020.

An invitation to get involved

During Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, five selected teams will build new solutions to the challenge of the Dutch Police and the Dutch Public Safety Alliance. We invite you to join the online environment to see what teams are working on, interact with their ideas, and contribute to new solutions that are valuable for you.
Therefore, the Dutch Police and the Dutch Public Safety Alliance are inviting all organizations that feel responsible for public safety, their safety specialists, firemen and women, dispatch center IT architects, and many other stakeholders to work with the teams, be the first to test and give feedback to the solutions, and then help launch the best solutions after the event.

WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOUR HELP

It is unacceptable that in these days of connectivity, relevant information about specific needs and available expertise is not available in emergency situations. From a painter with a long ladder just two blocks away from a fire in a tall building to a hobby drone flyer who happens to be in the park nearby who can give the firefighters a crucial overview in seconds. In order to realize an optimal approach in and towards an emergency situation, data has to be shared. Data of potential victims and of willing and able volunteers (stakeholders) that can be of help in that specific emergency situation.
Inclusive Safety Communities Impact
The centralized incident response system, where the government is the ‘supplier’ and the civilian the ‘client’, is the worldwide standard and the concept to disrupt in this challenge. By allowing everyone with relevant knowledge, skills and means to participate, from truck drivers with a hinge in their truck to someone who has experience in re-directing traffic, the emergency response system becomes much more effective and powerful.

Impact

We can create a society where we are all safety contributors, not safety consumers, by changing the dispatch center’s role, automating demand and supply, and using valuable civilian contributions to extend emergency service capacities, redefining civilian collaboration.

WHAT WE ARE BUILDING

The challenge for the teams and everyone helping them:

“Create a privacy by design data sharing infrastructure, enabling anyone and anything to share relevant (personal) data during specific incidents and crises. Therefore, allowing both citizens and professionals to help resolve emergency situations based on their skills, expertise and means.”

Find out what each team is building and which part of the problem they are tackling, and how you can contribute.
