02Will your technology help accelerate the GMK?

Imagine: you are cycling home calmly and then all of a sudden: heavy breaking and a collision. Glass, airbags, blood. Someone needs help quickly. Same goes for a fire or robbery. This, and another 1.000.000 emergency calls that the people of our GMK (Joint Emergency Control Centre) are faced with every year. The GMK The Hague is a co-operation between the emergency control rooms of the police, the fire and ambulance services for the area’s Haaglanden and Hollands-Midden. They respond to emergency requests from citizens 24 hours per day, 7 hours per week.
