It’s not enough for cities to be “smart.” As we see in the case of Hurricane Sandy, situational awareness and responsiveness are fundamental to ensuring public safety before, during, and aftermajor incidents and emergencies. By improving the availability and analysis of information in real-time and while mobile, cities can act more decisively, mobilize goods and services more effectively, and potentially better protect the lives of their citizens.
