For Our Future Hoosier Heroes
Project Hoosier Safe-T
Safe-T by the Numbers: 88 million calls between first responders last year.
Saving Money, Saving Lives
When Hoosier families are in danger because of natural disaster, crime or medical emergencies, response time is measured in lives, not seconds. And when a firefighter is trapped in a burning building or a police officer needs backup, the ability to get immediate help can mean the difference between life and death.
IPSC’s mission is to facilitate statewide public safety communications. IPSC provides interoperable and reliable public safety communications systems to all Hoosier first responders and public safety professionals for use during routine, emergency and task force situations. Our goal is to strengthen community safety and security by minimizing the financial and technological barriers to interoperable communications through interagency cooperation.
On April 20-21, 2018 hundreds of bright, innovative and creative young minds (aka geeks) will convene in Fishers, Indiana for special Hackathon for Public Safety. The Integrated Public Safety Commission (IPSC) is working with FirstNet and AT&T to make the IoTCivicHack as exciting and productive as possible. Even if you can’t tell a motherboard from a modem, we need your help! We’re looking for public safety leaders to serve as Mentors during the event. You’ll inspire hackers to find solutions for real-world problems by sharing your experiences and the challenges you face while performing your job. We’re also setting up a Vehicle/Equipment Rodeo to help hackers visualize the tools you use today and inspire them to look for future solutions.
