With the growth of urbanization, traffic and increased inhabitation in Indian cities we feel the need of improved vigilance and a secured environment around us.We realize technology is more powerful now than ever before so we want to integrate it in every aspect of our life. The demographics of India sense a greater threat due to its fickle environment.
Whether it is the news of increased rates of accidents in highways, an unexpected criminal attack amidst the road, we want a system in place to call out for immediate assistance. Not only measures are needed to provide mitigative resources for such risks but also a preventive system is set in place.
Integrated calling mechanism: The Government had long introduced different toll free numbers for different emergency situations for example 100 for police service, 102 for ambulance,101 for fire. However the hassle of remembering different numbers and phone number showing busy at the time of need was a common problem faced by the people. This proved to be a bottleneck in providing timely services to the people in distress.Hence the need for an integrated response system was felt.A single integrated number to address any kind of emergency. Recent development has been Uttar Pradesh’s universal response system with number 100.
Integration of Maps with the system: The Location of the person dialing in for help can immediately be traced to provide timely services at the location of the incident.
Locally stationed Help: To avoid cases of accidents in highways ambulances are stationed at different locations so that help is available without any delay at the spot of the incident. Also installations of CCTVS cameras at most public places make the task of police easier with a clear recording of the location. Police is also stationed at different localities so
Emergency response systems in India are an indispensable part of nation’s security. To make the justified use of technology at the right places can solve multiple issues. The citizens should also be made aware of the conveniences Government is providing them so they can get benefited.
