[efoods]A project in Frisco schools is bringing new meaning to emergency response. In a matter of seconds, police and fire crews can now check out security cameras at city schools.
Security cameras have been in schools for years, but the city of Frisco has developed a program that allows officers and firefighters to view video from those cameras from their own patrol cars and fire trucks. That could mean saved time for emergency crews to save lives.
The program, called SAFER, allows emergency officials to instantly tap into hundreds of cameras at Frisco schools from virtually anywhere.
