TYSONS CORNER, VA, August 14, 2019 — AT&T (NYSE: T) will utilize RapidDeploy’s Nimbus dispatch platform, which provides visual data for first responders, alongside the FirstNet nationwide public safety network in an effort to help the Kansas 911 Coordinating Council bolster emergency response, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

The cloud-aided technology, which 911 contact centers in Kansas can access using AT&T NetBond and first responders can link to using FirstNet, is scheduled for deployment across 80 percent of Kansas 911 centers, according to an AT&T statement published Aug. 7. Nimbus is also equipped with location accuracy software and shows live data feeds of earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters.

“We applaud the Kansas 911 Coordinating Council for its ongoing dedication to deliver an outstanding emergency response experience,” said Stacy Schwartz, vice president for public safety and FirstNet at AT&T. “Working with RapidDeploy, we’re helping unify critical 911 functions to boost speed, security and reliability between 911 call takers, dispatchers and first responders – all for the benefit of those they work tirelessly to help keep safe,” she added.
