Motorola radios deployed by Allegheny County

Allegheny County in the United States has implemented Motorola Solutions’ two-way radios to improve public safety.

Used by law enforcement, fire departments and emergency medical services (EMS), the APX Project 25 (P25) two-way radios provide seamless communication across agencies and state borders.

“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’ multiband 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.
