ABSTRACT

Texas Innovative Practice - County Radio Systems   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Summary: "The City of Houston, Harris County and Montgomery County built a fully interoperable emergency management communication network. Montgomery County's network was built independently of the Houston/Harris County network, and all three governments coordinated to ensure that networks were interoperable and continue to rely on one another for increased operational effectiveness. Previous networks required responders to carry multiple radios to communicate across jurisdictional lines; otherwise, responders were unable to communicate outside of their jurisdiction. Responders believe these upgraded operational communication capabilities saved countless lives during Hurricane Harvey."
