Innovate Raleigh, AT&T, and NC Open Pass Partner to Identify First Responders Civic Technology Solutions
The group reviewed each post-it note and looked for commonalities. The post-it notes were combined into broad problem statements.
The top problem statements were presented to a group of civic technologists at Open Raleigh’s National Day of Civic Hacking meetup. The National Day of Civic Hacking is a national, coordinated effort bringing together urbanists, civic hackers, government staff, developers, designers, and community organizers to make their community better. Efland Fire Department Assistant Chief Pete Hallenbeck gave the participants a demonstration of current applications that are used by his agency.
The problem statements (and detailed notes and pictures) will be shared again at the Saturday hackathon at NC Open Pass Civic Camp on Sept. 22. Teams formed during the Civic Camp hackathon will begin a seven-week design sprint to build a scalable startup and will pitch their project at the NC Open Pass DataPalooza on Nov. 8. The winner will be included in the 2018 Innovate Raleigh Summit event programming the following day.
