– Real-time disaster site monitoring for enhanced on-site response capabilities and rescue worker safety
– Disaster readiness with mobile base station support for shadow zone coverage in northern Gyeonggi Province

The Northern Gyeonggi-do Provincial Fire & Disaster Headquarters (Chief: Ko Deok-geun) announced on April 20 that it signed an MOU with KT Gangbuk/Gangwon for a pilot smart bodycam solution project and mobile base station support for shadow zone coverage.

The MOU ceremony held at the Northern Gyeonggi-do Provincial Fire & Disaster Headquarters was attended by 20 officials including Chief Ko Deok-geun and KT Gangbuk/Gangwon Director Yu Chang-gyu.

With this agreement, KT Gangbuk/Gangwon will provide smart bodycam solution support as well as mobile base station support to facilitate video monitoring.

Through the smart bodycam solution, real-time video recordings of disaster sites can be transmitted to the 119 emergency service control center, contributing significantly to on-site chain of command and rescue worker protection during emergencies.

Also, as disaster sites in suburban areas far from urban centers are geographically prone to being shadow zones, this project’s mobile base station support will ensure coverage of such areas and resolve any communication blind spots.

Chief Ko Deok-geun of the Northern Gyeonggi-do Provincial Fire & Disaster Headquarters said, “We expect to see a paradigm shift in disaster response through the use of the smart bodycam solution that utilizes the latest ICT infrastructure.”

He added, “We will establish a more systematic and effective on-site response system to secure a societal safety net for disasters while also ensuring the safety of rescue workers at disaster sites.”
