Addressing the Relevance of PESEA for the Next Generation Emergency Services
The NEXES Consortium was invited to present the novel propositions for a next generation emergency service to the 112 regional directors across Spain, gathered to discuss the latest innovations, regulation and standards applicable to the emergency sector at the XXV Foro Nacional de Directores Y Responsables De Centros 112 De Comunidades Autónomas De España, hosted by the autonomous city of Ceuta, from March 8th to 10th 2017, in Spain.
The XXV National Forum for 112 Emergency Centres became familiar with the NEXES’s propositions on the Pan-European Specifications for Emergency Applications (PESEA) and the use of the PEMEA architecture to enable citizens using the NEXES App or any NEXES-compliant emergency App to reach emergency services anywhere in Europe, providing their precise location and additional personal information, including health information and in case of emergency contacts, while meeting the relevant requirements on functionality, cost, security and privacy. This technical meeting also enabled a broad discussion on emergency Apps and the benefits of automated emergency calls, including the use of the next generation eCall system, all issues currently tackled by the NEXES endeavour.
This event served the opportunity to disseminate the NEXES results before an audience of emergency stakeholders that are part of the NEXES end-users community, thus contributing to widen the scope of NEXES’s communication activities and promote additional societal impact as the NEXES results become known across the European emergency services.
The two videos below (in English and Spanish respectively) demonstrate the NEXES PESEA implementation in action.
