New Jersey to Demonstrate Capacity for Enhanced Inter-agency Communications

Technological Solutions Connect Disparate Radio Systems


WHAT:
New Jersey Homeland Security officials will announce emergency radio interoperability solutions and demonstrate the capability for personnel from different first responder agencies to communicate with each other using existing radio equipment.

The events of 9/11/01 proved the need for police officers, firefighters and emergency medical services personnel to communicate effectively in times of need.

More recently, the 9/11 Commission’s report reemphasized the need to communicate among various first responder agencies across geographic and political jurisdictions.

WHO:
Attorney General Peter C. Harvey, State Police Superintendent Rick Fuentes, State Public Safety Communications Officer Raymond Hayling II, representatives from the United States Coast Guard, New Jersey State Police (Troop B), University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey, Jersey City Fire Department, Jersey City EMS, Newark Police Department, Nutely Fire Department (HazMat Unit), Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, Essex County Sheriff’s Department, Passaic County Sheriff’s Office and other area public safety agencies.

WHERE:
Jersey City Emergency Operations Center
715 Summit Ave., Jersey City

WHEN:
Wednesday, January 19 at 1:30 PM

VISUALS:
An outdoor demonstration among 12 first responder agencies, using different radio systems. The agencies will flash their respective emergency vehicle lights when contacted, providing a visual indication that disparate agencies can communicate with each other.
