GINQO launches Public Safety and Emergency Management Learning Series

GINQO is pleased to announce our Public Safety and Emergency Management Learning Series. Since 2011, GINQO has provided actionable data analytics, using best in class technologies and processes, to Public Safety and Emergency Management agencies across Canada. Our solutions consolidate data from multiple systems and sources and integrate geospatial mapping to provide the information required for strategically informed decisions. “We’re very proud of the solutions we’ve built with our public safety customers and know the information informs strategic decisions that help save lives and property,” said GINQO President Ingo Hardieck. “We’re grateful Chief Larry Thomas, Deputy Chief Brian Godlonton and Deputy Chief Greg Furlong will be sharing their solutions and the benefits they’ve achieved by implementing data-driven decision making. We know other agencies will benefit from hearing their stories.”

Throughout the video learning series that begins the week of October 7, 2019, Surrey Fire Service, Langley City Fire Rescue Service and Ottawa Paramedic Service will share why they chose analytics, their solutions and how the information drives planning, improves use of resources, identifies trends and increases operational effectiveness. The series will culminate with a webinar on November 26, 2019 at 10 AM PST/1 PM EST. Registration for this important Public Safety and Emergency Management Learning Series can be completed by visiting the Public Safety section of GINQO’s web site at

Ottawa Paramedics - Emergency Response Drone Demo

At Qonnections 2019, we introduced the Emergency Response Drone – a proof of concept leveraging Qlik Core IoT and AI. This innovation can positively disrupt humanitarian efforts, proven with the initial trial flight and test situation debut, it raised eyebrows for emergency workers with the possibilities around improving response efficiency for critical situations. The Emergency Response Drone uses Qlik Core for analyzing multiple data streams, including Computer Vision, to make smart recommendations at disaster sites for emergency workers to act in real time. Ultimately, the Qlik Associative and Cognitive Engines working together can make emergency responses safer and more effective.

The Ottawa Paramedics Service is using a real-time data analytics platform from software company Qlik to help emergency responders save time – and lives.

The Ottawa Paramedics Service has been using Qlik’s historical data management system for around six years, using it to predict priorities for events such as Halloween or Canada Day, according to deputy chief Greg Furlong. Around a year and a half ago it gained access to real-time data and decided to implement analysis of that data into a dashboard used by emergency paramedic supervisors and staff at four of Ottawa’s largest hospitals.
