Bergen Fire Department has implemented a service that enables a person calling the emergency numbers to submit live footage from their smartphone camera to the dispatcher. The streaming system is now in place many places in Norway and, among other things, can give first responders en route access to the live video or saved footage and therefore a better idea for what to expect.
– “When we receive a call from a public member reporting about smoke coming from a rooftop or from the forrest, or something that is hard to interpret, we can send them a link via SMS allowing us to use their phones camera function, and live streaming allows us to see exactly what the caller sees. – Morten Frantzen, Dispatcher Bergen Fire Department.
The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) has made a documentary about their visit and you can see the whole interview at their video channel.
