Statewide Interoperable Communications System Regional Listening Sessions and User Interviews

OEC_Listening12-16June

As required by State Statute 323.29(3)(a)2, the Wisconsin Office of Emergency Communications is currently in the process of developing an RFP for a statewide interoperable radio communications system. In order to develop an RFP that aims to meet the needs of the public safety users in Wisconsin, the Office will be hosting regional listening sessions and user interviews during the week of June 11th, 2018. The purpose of these meetings is to identify coverage and operational requirements from the various user groups throughout the state. The intended audience includes current daily and interop users of the WISCOM system, agencies that currently operate their own radio system, or anyone interested in joining the new statewide radio system in the future.

To collect adequate information regarding coverage and operational requirements for the new system, several questions may be asked of participants during these listening sessions. Please come prepared to discuss the following topics with our team.

  • Use of WISCOM
  • Coverage
  • Reliability
  • Subscriber Devices
  • Operations (Daily Use, Event Use, Critical Event Use)
  • Maintenance in General
  • Interoperability
  • Critical Buildings
