Rugged Tablets for First Responders

Overcoming Mobile Technology Challenges

The ability to respond quickly and reliably with focus, dedication, and precision is essential for our first responders. Why should the devices and technology they depend on be any different? Unfortunately, many police, fire, and EMS departments use outdated technology, mobile devices, or tablets that don’t communicate effectively. As a result, devices can fail to exchange valuable information, or they may be slowed down by sub-standard connectivity and processing abilities. Furthermore, many departments still rely on cumbersome paper-based reporting, which can cause reports and documents to be misplaced. Manual paper-based documentation can also limit the exchange of information both internally and across departments.

Whether it’s law enforcement, EMS, or fire departments, there are inefficiencies in data collection and reporting among emergency personnel. Having purpose-built technology can ultimately help our first responders resolve connectivity and collaboration challenges while also providing an invaluable service to our communities.

Achieve Reliable Connection and Real-Time Collaboration with Rugged Tablets


A mobile device’s ability to maintain a secure, reliable wireless connection is paramount. Rugged enterprise tablets come with advanced capabilities that enable personnel to access back-end applications while out in the field. Using rugged devices for incident response also allows responders to quickly and accurately input critical information on the spot. You can also outfit rugged mobile tablets with voice-enabled applications to make data entry more efficient and intuitive.

Real-time information and collaboration is critical for first responders. Significant emergency events often require collaboration between different departments and agencies. As a result, first responders need reliable mobile solutions for clear communication so important information is transferred quickly and safely to those who need it.

Overall, rugged tablets can help provide faster responses and execution of tasks when responding to emergency situations.
