FE / Kimball Secures Public Safety

Our staff members have a vast amount of real-world experience in many mission critical markets, with many specializing in public safety. In fact, two FE / Kimball experts co-chaired the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Committee that created security standards for public safety.

Cyber security: An increasingly important issue for today’s 9-1-1 systems

A recent survey by FE / Kimball revealed that of those who recently moved to an NG9-1-1 system, 62% reported cyber security issues in the past 24 months and 54% of those agencies experienced system downtime as a result.
