Motorola Solutions APX Radio Management for emergencies

During 2020, public safety agencies across the United States faced a multitude of extreme and historic weather events, including the highest-ever number of named hurricanes and storms, plus the record California wildfires. This year those agencies will rely on technology and support from Motorola Solutions to help keep communities safe and protected.

The use of Project 25 (P25) land mobile radio (LMR) networks and devices allows federal, state and local agencies to collaborate even when cellular networks are down. For example, the Butte County Information Systems Department managed the August 2020 North Complex fire in California using Motorola Solutions’ APX Radio Management for over-the-air programming of radios relied upon by county law enforcement and more than 300 volunteers who helped with search and rescue efforts.

Using Motorola Solutions’ command centre software suite, agencies are migrating software operations to the cloud for increased security, system redundancy and resilience. With cloud-based systems, non-essential public safety personnel can work remotely if their workplaces are impacted by natural disasters.
