Moreover, the signed protocol aims to define the method of collecting technical needs from the unified national network for emergency and public safety which operates with advanced wireless communication technology and provides integrated services for modern secured communications and mobile applications. This in line with the services provided by the petroleum and mineral wealth sector with the aim of building an integrated system for emergency and crisis management, in addition to operations according to international standards.
