With the explosive increase in mobile telephones, our geomatic team plays a prominent role in the handling of emergency calls. Thanks to this team, it is possible to quickly locate cellular telephones and mobilize adequate resources. By triangulating devices with the antennas of different companies (TELUS, Bell, Videotron, Rogers, etc.), the X/Y coordinates are available to CAUCA’s experts for treating emergency calls.
This also allows the management of several layers of cartographic information, supplied by the Minister of Public Safety, such as electric power grids or water supply networks. This division of areas by sector, combined with the geolocation of telephones, is crucial to providing the right information to dispatchers, in order to contact the appropriate emergency operation services.
