Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI) announced its implementation of APX™
Project 25 (P25) two-way radios into the Maryland FiRST Radio System for
Allegheny County. Used by law enforcement, fire departments and
emergency medical services (EMS), the radios provide seamless
communication across agencies and state borders. For 20 years, Allegany
County has used Motorola Solutions for mission critical communications.
“Communications is vital in everything we do from a simple control check
to a major incident,” said Captain Chuck Ternent, Cumberland Police,
Allegheny County, MD. “It’s great to now be able to pick up your
microphone and get a clear message through.”
The entire Maryland FiRST System is using Motorola Solutions’ routing
systems, customer premise equipment and now APX™ two-way radios to serve
the county’s population of more than 70,000.
“Cross-agency communications is very important,” said Steve Shipley,
Chief of Emergency Management, Allegheny County, Maryland. “With
Motorola Solutions’ multi-band P25 radios, our officers use one radio to
communicate with any law enforcement agencies. This makes a response to
a large scale incident that much more seamless; officers don’t have to
carry multiple radios to communicate with different agencies.”
“By joining the Maryland FiRST mission-critical radio system, Allegheny
County experienced immediate benefits including enhanced coverage and
interoperability with first responders across the state,” said Mike
Leonard, Mid-Atlantic Territory Vice-President at Motorola Solutions.
“Motorola Solutions is honored to work with the county to provide
solutions first responders need to help keep people safe.”
On May 17th, Motorola Solutions Inc. hosted a celebratory event for the
county’s public safety responders, agency officials and local
