BroadWay is actively contributing to improving the Operational Mobility of all PPDR practitioners and thus facilitate cross-border operations and cooperation. Operational Mobility will allow practitioners to operate wherever they are, whenever they need to, and with whoever they are tasked to cooperate.
BroadWay pilots will concretely show how it is possible for firefighters, policemen or emergency units to move from their country to another country and to remain seamlessly connected to their operational hierarchy, control, and colleagues in the field.
The BroadWay Group of Procurers includes 11 ministries or their delegated agency responsible for providing public safety communication capabilities in their country. They currently provide mobile communication services to 1.4 million responders across Europe. The countries involved in the BroadWay PCP include: Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Ireland, The Netherlands, Romania and Spain. This group of procurer is led by ASTRID, the operator for emergency and security communication services in Belgium.
