Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix and live streaming

During the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Monaco, safety is the highest priority and Monaco’s fire department and police must be able to keep track of all their units while controlling the crowd. An important capacity for Public Safety is the live stream that Bliksund provides via IncidentShare. This gives the police and fire brigade a quick overview of any situation that requires a fast intervention.

The backbone of Monacos preparedness

Le Centre de Gestion des Evènements et de Conduite des Opérations de Secours (CGECOS), is an Emergency Operation Centre designed to be set up quickly for a major incident, such as a weather disaster or catastrophic emergency. Whether at the county or state level, EOC facilities have been funded and maintained at the highest levels. From here they can follow any type of incident from the IncidentShare platform.
The Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) was opened, by Prince Albert 2. of Monaco and live streaming capabilities are operated by the fire department through the IncidentShare solution.

The Grand Prix constitutes a challenging security task

The Grand Prix in Monaco constitutes a challenging security task for the Monegasque Public Safety agencies in terms of gathering relevant incident data and assimilating live feeds into one single application at their various command centres. During the Grand Prix, the firefighters’ Corps des Sapeurs-Pompiers de Monaco and the police (Sûreté Publique) respond to incidents, ranging from road accidents to fuel and chemical spills to fires, and on top of this, they need to pay attention to the approximately 200,000 Formula 1 spectators.

Therefore, the authorities are facing an increasingly complex security task, complicated by the infrastructure of Monaco. Due to the complex security task, Corps des Sapeurs-Pompiers de Monaco and the police, Sûreté Publique wanted to be able to quickly observe the sensitive areas around the circuit in order to limit any risk. And as a result, Corps des Sapeurs-Pompiers de Monaco contacted Bliksund to support the Monegasque authorities with a secure streaming solution. Bliksund's solution formed a common platform, meaning that firefighters and the police are able to maintain full situational awareness across the Grand Prix with the camera feed from the drone in the sky. Today this solution has been operative 24/7 for the past three years.
