Marine Corps Systems Command Receives Award for Emergency Response System from Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure

Huntsville, Alabama – Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure presented Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) with an Icon Award for its efforts to improve emergency response capabilities at U.S. Marine Corps bases globally. Announced at HxGN LIVE, Hexagon’s annual conference, the Icon Awards are Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s highest customer award, presented for visionary use of software to significantly benefit citizens and communities.

In 2009, a gunman opened fire at Fort Hood, Texas, killing 13 people and injuring more than 30 others. Soldiers and Fort Hood emergency personnel saved many lives that day, but the incident exposed gaps in the military’s emergency response model. Following the incident, the U.S. Secretary of Defense undertook a complete study and ordered the U.S. Armed Forces to address shortfalls in their response systems. MCSC was tasked with addressing the Secretary’s requirements.

MCSC chose to implement a comprehensive solution called the Consolidated Emergency Response System (CERS). Foundational to the solution is Hexagon’s Intergraph® Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) system, delivered by Hexagon US Federal, an independent subsidiary of Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure serving the U.S. federal government. I/CAD is being implemented at 13 Marine Corps sites, including three bases outside the U.S. Hexagon’s solution successfully incorporates the previously fielded Motorola Solutions, Inc. Enhanced 911 (E911) system into a fully integrated emergency response coordination capability. Most Marine Corps personnel, their families, and others on base will be protected by the solution, which increases the effectiveness of law enforcement and fire and rescue personnel and reduces response times.

“We are honored to support the CERS solution,” said Steven Cost, president, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure congratulates the MCSC on its 2017 Icon Award.”

MCSC joins Bayernwerk, Bell Canada and Uttar Pradesh Police as 2017 Icon Award winners.
