ECLI: The system that saves lives

Wed 23 May 2 — 4pm

Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment, 15 Stout Street, Wellington, New Zealand

When innovative minds collaborate, they turn data into life-saving information.
This event has already happened!

The Emergency Caller Location Information (ECLI) is a game-changer system for emergency services, as it enables them to determine the exact location of a distressed person even when the caller is unable to speak, the call is cut-off or they don’t know their whereabouts.

The system is a unique collaboration between the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), Emergency Service Providers (New Zealand Police, New Zealand Fire Service, St John and Wellington Free Ambulance) and Mobile Network Operators (Spark, 2degrees and Vodafone).

Come around and learn how exactly the system works, the real-life impact it has had on New Zealanders, and the legal measures that have been carefully agreed to protect our privacy rights along with our lives.
