Public Safety Technology
Technology Solutions to Drive Future Innovation
CHHS’s Public Safety Technology Program helps response organizations get the most from the technology solutions they have in place, plan for future investments, and drive innovation. CHHS works directly with clients to tackle the challenges of integrating new systems, solutions, and tools into existing operations through strategic planning, targeted trainings, and comprehensive exercises. We also provide thought leadership, guidance, and scholarship on emerging public safety technologies. CHHS has helped a diverse set of clients with a wide range of technologies, from local governments looking to upgrade existing land mobile radio systems, to hospital coalitions training and exercising new patient tracking systems, to states preparing for new federal investments in fiber networks and LTE networks. Whether considering a new investment, or simply looking to get the most out of the systems you already have in place, CHHS can help you tackle your public safety technology challenges.

PIV-I Credentialing, Foundation for Trusted Identity
We all know that username and password logins are not great security. We also know things can get confusing fast when personnel from different agencies and jurisdictions descend on a response scene to provide mutual aid. Unified, interoperable, secure credentialing is the solution to both these problems. Working with the Texas non-profit Foundation for Trusted Identity, CHHS helps local governments and public safety entities get federally certified high-assurance credentials at a price they can afford. As a result, public safety is finally able to enjoy the efficiency and security benefits that these state-of-the-art credentials offer.
FirstNet and Maryland First – Maryland Department of Information Technology
The arrival of FirstNet, a Federally operated interoperable public safety broadband network, along with the growing marketplace for public-safety-grade 4G and 5G LTE data networks means that first responders will soon be able to rely on cellular data connections, even during major disasters. These reliable connections promise to fuel a thriving new generation of mission-critical public safety apps, devices, and sensors – all of which will change the way police, fire, and EMS professionals operate. CHHS worked with Maryland to plan for the arrival of these game-changing technologies and navigate the integration of these new modes and methods of communications into existing radio-first landscapes.
Eastern Shore Communications Alliance
CHHS helped the Eastern Shore Communications Alliance (ESCA), a cooperative alliance that serves the Shore’s interoperability governance body, develop detailed plans, goals, and objectives for long-range implementation and administration of grant-funded programs to enhance emergency communications capabilities and evaluate the effectiveness of those program.
