Introduction to Interoperable Radio Operations - June 18-19, 2015, 9-4pm @ Rankin Co Ext Office, Brandon, MS
This training is being offered by the Mississippi Wireless
Communication Commission in conjunction with the United States Department of Homeland
Security, Office of Emergency Communications.
It will be held June 18th and 19th, 2015 at the Rankin County Extension
Services Building located at 601 Marquette Road, Brandon, MS 39042.
This service offering is for
professional and volunteer individuals who work in public safety but not
directly in emergency communications. Individuals who will benefit from this
workshop are those who may need a deeper understanding and some practical
knowledge of interoperable radio communications. For example, fire fighters, law enforcement
support personnel, and volunteer auxiliary emergency communicators, among
others, will benefit from a better understanding about public safety
interoperable and emergency communications.
Key topics include:
radio spectrum and how it is used in public safety
limitations of public safety voice and data communications
considerations about interoperable emergency communications
for establishing and maintaining interoperable communications during an
incident or planned event
and hands-on familiarization with various vendors’ subscriber and base station
communications lessons learned from real-world incidents
This will be a two-day seminar,
but both days will cover the same material. The first half of each day deals with general
topics and basic skills. The second half
of each day is devoted to hands-on activities including a review of the use of
the MSWIN Special Event talk groups. This
may include, in coordination with the attendees’ needs, a tour of a PSCC or an
Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to gain a better understanding of the
interrelationship between dispatch functions or base station operations and
everyday interoperable communications. Attendees who are volunteers must be sponsored
by a public safety agency.
