Police, fire, and emergency medical service agencies in Onondaga County were operating with outdated equipmenton different radio systems using various frequencies. This made communication between public safety agenciesdifficult. Additionally, other local government agencies operated on their own radio systems, which were incompatiblewith each other. In a major emergency, such as a weapon of mass destruction event, communication betweencrucial government agencies would have been very difficult. This project replaced the various radio systems usedcountywide with a single system with interoperability. This enables agencies to better communicate with each otherand to better serve the public. The OCICS system became operational in February 2010. Various entities wereintegrated into the system over the course of the next eighteen months. We are currently fine tuning the system toensure that it is operating at maximum capability.
