In the context of emergency response communication, interoperability means that 911 Call Receivers, Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Systems, and Fire all utilize the same communication systems and operational staff.
Integration is not only a step needed to keep our services up to date, it is crucial in positioning Spokane to utilize fast-approaching technologies. Our emergency service response must become integrated to have capacity for the coming technologies.
