PEMEA Consortium
The PEMEA consortium is in charge of ensuring the quality and reliability criteria updated, so that both the Internet applications and the emergency services can offer the best service to the citizens. The following entities can be part of the PEMEA Consortium:

The PSAPs

Call centers where emergency calls (police, fire brigade, ambulance) initiated by any mobile or landline subscriber are terminated. It can also happen that when 112 is dialed in then a logic is implemented by mobile or network operators to route the call to the nearest police station.

Public emergency management organizations

Suppliers of all types of PEMEA network nodes being part the PEMEA network. The PEMEA testing partner will provide a lab environment, ready to validate the full interoperability (according to the standard) of new PEMEA network nodes, new Emergency Apps and new PSAP systems with the rest of the already deployed PEMEA network.

The PEMEA Trusting partners

Private, Associations and consulting companies providing services and products that ensure the safety of people. In that category are the App providers, Multimedia services providers, telecommunications providers but also ONG and consulting firm interested by the PEMEA implementation.
