New Team Members Bring Public Safety Service and NG9-1-1 Expertise to DATAMARK
DATAMARK is committed to the public safety community and this is reflected in our efforts to recruit team members with a depth and breadth of public safety experience. After all, for our team to work closely with our customers, a hands-on knowledge of the high-stakes first responder environment is essential whether it’s from fire, police, emergency response, PSAP communications or public safety operations. Trust, understanding and integrity in our shared mission is the core of DATAMARK’s success.
As the public safety community moves toward NG9-1-1 adoption and a higher level of GIS data requirements, our entire team will work with customers and apply its deep understanding of and experience with GIS and the local addressing workflow to support current 9-1-1 systems and transitions to NG9-1-1. Our experience and technology are unmatched in the industry. For decades, we’ve performed projects for local and national municipalities, created solutions for complex government addressing projects, and worked closely with telecommunications companies.
