> Whitepaper:
This eight-part series focuses on some of the fundamental areas of change that must be addressed to become a City of the Future.


Eliminating long-term risks to people, property and the environment from everyday hazards is one of the utmost concerns of any municipality. The institutionalization of modern public safety programs that address the provision of exceptional fire, EMS and police protection, proactive infrastructure monitoring and sound emergency planning is an important aspect of “City of the Future” planning. New-age strategies that utilize state-of-the-art technology must be adopted to deliver the changes needed.

Here is what your City of the Future may look like:

Your city has improved communication systems to quickly respond to emergency situations. The “City of the Future” provides its public safety employees with advanced technology and modern strategies for the purpose of quick and effective communication. Police, Fire, and EMS are able to coordinate and collaborate at a rapid pace. Swift and efficient communication has led to a dramatic increase in emergency response time, which has been the key factor in protecting the city’s residents. Lives and dollars have been saved with the utilization of modern communications systems.

Detailed emergency planning safeguards the city’s residents and assets. Elaborate emergency response plans are in place to protect the city’s greatest assets in the case of a threatening event. Key personnel are trained to carry out all plans, and state-of-the-art technology is employed in the process. These plans ensure the protection of the city’s people and the proper shielding of any valuable assets. The “City of the Future” is prepared to respond to any form of emergency because of its commitment to exceptional public safety.

Advanced data analytics have led to enhanced projections and preventative measures. Cutting-edge data systems allow the “City of the Future” to respond to threats before they happen. These data systems provide valuable insight into managing every aspect of public safety from managing maintenance schedules to anticipating crime by city regions.

Public safety is an indispensable element of all cities. BlumShapiro Consulting will help your city strengthen its public safety programs by working with you to establish the right initiatives needed to institute best practices and exploit the latest technologies—enabling your city to adequately respond to any and all dangers and threats to public safety.
