What is the modern REACT all about?
It is amazing to see the various programs and relationships that have developed between REACT Teams and their local governments and emergency services. Teams may: provide first-aid and communications at a multitude of publicly attended events, directly assist local police services with traffic control, provide specialized equipment such as scene lighting, and the list goes on. The interesting thing is that these initiatives come from local teams recognizing the needs in their communities which, with planning and creative thinking, their organizations can fulfill.
Although REACT’s roots are in communications, most successful teams have gone way beyond this role in their communities. Given the incredible advances in personal communications, successful teams have honed in on an expanded role to ensure their long term viability in providing a multitude of services. Keep in mind, communication technology is only one of the tools teams can utilize to solidify their position within their communities.
So what is modern REACT all about? Modern REACT is about the future. We can only imagine the incredible technologies that will be available for REACT Teams to use in the next few years.
