The private security operator of the Ice Hockey World Championship tournament used Insta Blue Aware situation awareness solution during the games. A management system containing the situation awareness solution and a mobile app was utilized as a common communication channel to share real-time information about situations between the teams on the site and the situation room.
The situation room of the security operator used Insta Blue Aware together with the authorities. Security guards situated on the field and the first aid units used Insta Blue Tracker.
With the apps, parties were able to communicate with photos, videos, and text messages. It was also possible to share real-time situational information about the operators and tasks on the field. The security guards on the field were able, for example, to take pictures of anomalies e.g., broken items, see each other’s locations real-time and send location data about disturbances real-time, all in one system.
With this technology the operation, planning, and coordination of the teams scattered on the field got easier and that affects the event safety and security. In addition, it allowed the cooperation between the authorities and other operators.
