By Oliver Barnes, DTI

In a groundbreaking development for school safety in Iowa, the local news station KTIV recently reported on the innovative work of Digital Twin Imaging (DTI) in their stride towards revolutionizing emergency response and preparedness across the state.

KTIV reports on DTI working closely with school districts and public safety agencies in Iowa to capture comprehensive virtual replicas of school interiors. Using LiDAR scanning mixed with 360 photography, DTI is able to produce highly accurate 3D models that mirror the physical environments down to the smallest details.

The true game-changer lies in the impact that these 3D models can have on emergency response efforts. As the KTIV report highlighted, first responders can use the digital twins to familiarize themselves with the layout of a school, plan their strategies, and even conduct virtual training exercises before an actual crisis occurs.

The news story featured interviews with local law enforcement officials who have found an immense benefit since the implementation of the technology in their county. "Anytime that you can reduce those response and resolution times, we can all agree that it will equate to the preservation of life," remarked Todd Schillinger who is the Commander for the multi-jurisdictional SWAT Team.

As the implementation of DTI's 3D modeling technology continues to gain momentum in Iowa, the state's schools and public safety agencies are positioned to see great benefits from this innovative solution. By fostering a collaborative partnership between these key stakeholders, the community can work together to create a safer and more secure learning environment for students and staff.

The KTIV news story on DTI's work in Iowa is a testament to the transformative power of technology in the realm of school safety. As other states and districts take note of the pioneering initiative, the potential for widespread adoption of 3D modeling solutions could lead to a new era of enhanced preparedness and response across the nation.
