Smart Resilience

The emergency response community in the UK now has access to a secure information-sharing platform, ResilienceDirect, to help respond to crises and major events.

Emergency responders need to be ready to deal with crises and disruptive events – ranging from natural disasters to deliberate attacks. Now the emergency response community in the UK have access to a new, fully accredited and secure information-sharing platform called ResilienceDirect™, underpinned by OS location data provided under the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA).

ResilienceDirect mapping is an essential tool for ministers and is testament to Civil Contingencies Secretariat's collaboration with partners.

With ResilienceDirect, real-time information can be shared across all organisational and geographic boundaries. For the first time, organisations can work collaboratively during an incident.

ResilienceDirect brings location context to operational data and can integrate with third-party datasets, making emergency responders better informed and able to make more accurate decisions, directly from their computer desktop or mobile device.
