Public Safety Communication Systems
management and federal, state, and local security under the current environment requires a coordinated and timely response. The ability of
the authorities to communicate in real time is critical to establishing command and control at the scene of an emergency, to maintaining event
situational awareness, and to be able to operate within a broad range of incidents. Wireless communications (including radio communications)
is the most effective way of transmitting and receiving information in any emergency situation where the affected area may not have the infrastructure
in place to serve first responders, or where such infrastructure may have been destroyed because of the event itself. Morcom offers communications
equipment and services designed to serve the authorities for the three levels where emergency communications are typically required:
- To Satisfy Operational Needs - Operational needs are the ability of emergency responders to establish and sustain communications
in support of mission operations. Equipment used at this level includes portable, mobile, and base station radios. Click here to see the range of equipment that Morcom offers.
- Interoperability Requirements - The ability of emergency responders to communicate among jurisdictions, disciplines, and levels
of government, using a variety of frequency bands, as needed and as authorized. Interoperability is achieved by means of equipment standardization,
frequency coordination, and by using systems that are capable of simultaneously cross-connecting different radio networks (VHF radio systems
vs UHF, AM vs FM, etc.), connecting radio networks to telephone systems (Cellphone or Satcom systems) or networks’ VoIP circuits. Morcom
offers systems that can allow you to achieve interoperability.
- Continuity of Communications - The ability of emergency response agencies to maintain communications in the event of damage
to or destruction of the primary infrastructure. This is especially serious when traditional means (i.e. wired telephone systems and the
wireless cell phone networks are taken for granted) are rendered ineffective or taken out of service during an emergency. Talk to us about
alternative emergency networks such as rugged HF-SSB systems.
In addition to the above systems, Morcom also has solutions to extend wireless communications systems into structures where normal reception is
not feasible. Click here to see information on our in-building wireless systems for public safety.
