Public Safety, Campus Safety, Emergency Management and Corporate Security are facing an increasing number of highly complex incidents. While we may have previously described events such as a mass shooting at a nightclub, a vehicle plowing through a crowd at a city festival, a knife attack on a college campus, or the hurricanes we recently experienced as unprecedented, the unfortunate reality is that this has become the new normal. I remember the mantra from my public safety days, “Train for the worst. Hope for the best.” Given recent trends, we might be better served by updating that philosophy to something along the lines of, “Expect the worst: Prepare. Execute. Adapt.” It’s no longer a question of if it will happen, but one of when, where and how big.
As part of this new normal and heightened readiness posture, those in the preparedness and response continuum have had to rapidly evolve their procedures and training by understanding both the emerging threat landscape and lessons learned from past incidents. Many have also looked to a new wave of tools that can harness mobility, leverage data and work seamlessly across jurisdictional boundaries and agencies to enhance established procedures and tactics.
The 2018 Rave Summit event will be a highly engaging and educational user event where attendees will learn best practices from peers and hear guest speakers present their firsthand experiences and lessons learned from recent events. In addition, participants will be exposed to the latest offerings of Rave, the leading provider of data and communications applications for mission critical collaboration. All of these opportunities will be set against the magnificent backdrop of the Rocky Mountains in Denver. So, take advantage of the early bird pricing and lock in the dates on your calendar – register now for the 2018 Rave Summit at www.ravemobilesafety.com/rave-summit/
