Region I Interoperable Communications Training
Two free sessions planned for emergency response personnel, 911, public works
ROLLA—The Region I Homeland Security Oversight Committee will host a interoperable communications training for fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, 911, public works personnel as well as county road and bridge workers.
Two free trainings are planned July 29 at the Eugene E. Northern Building, 400 W. Fourth Street in Rolla.
The first training will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be an in-depth workshop that will cover detailed information on local incident communications planning and use of available interoperable resources. Lunch will be provided at no cost.
The second training is scheduled from 6-9 p.m. and will be a more basic level training covering the same topics as the in-depth session only in less detail. Dinner will be provided at no cost for the evening training.
The class will cover developing communications plans, communicating between agencies, understanding narrow-banding and P-25 radio requirements among other issues.

Participants may attend one or both trainings.
Communications command vehicles will be on display for demonstration along with other radio equipment. Attendees may bring portable radios and other interoperable communications resources to be integrated into the training.
Command 1, who has delivered similar training in other parts of the state, will provide the training. Region I HSOC’s Interoperability Committee planned the training based on needs of radio communication users across the region and secured a grant through Missouri’s Department of Homeland Security.
