A new $17 million multi-agency response system is online and improving the ability of the state's services to respond to emergencies.
Tasmania's Emergency Service Computer Aided Dispatch system is the first of its kind in Australia.
Tasmania Police Deputy Commissioner Scott Tilyard said before the new system was implemented the state's emergency services were using separate systems.
"More and more we are involved in multi-agency responses to incidents. Now the system allows each of our respective radio rooms to know exactly what's going on [and] we can share information without having to pick up the phone," Deputy Commissioner Tilyard said.
"It's important, not only in the effectiveness of our response, but in the safety of our members."
Ambulance Tasmania chief executive Neil Kirby said during an emergency minutes could mean the difference between life and death.
"We know that we gain a lot of minutes in an automated system," Mr Kirby said.
"The greatest benefit for us is that the communication and coordination that happens between all the emergency services happens from the point of the phone call, not when we get to the scene."
Tasmania Fire Service chief officer Chris Arnol said a benefit of having the same interface across agencies was resources could be easily shared during busy periods, such as the bushfire season.
Tasmania Police's system went online in October 2017, followed by the Tasmania Fire Service and State Emergency Service in September 2018 and Ambulance Tasmania in June 2019.
