Guide for Short-Term Interoperability
Adopted November 17, 2004
The Oregon SIEC assembled this Guide for Short-Term Interoperability (pdf) to assist non-technical, everyday public safety personnel in achieving simple, short-term interoperability solutions to enhance day-to-day operations that afford preparation for major multi-jurisdictional events. These short-term efforts are leading to longer term and much more comprehensive solutions to wireless interoperability for public safety agencies throughout the entire State of Oregon.

Short-Term Recommendations for Interoperability
Revised and Adopted September 7, 2004
The Oregon SIEC recognizes that these Short-term Recommendations for Interoperability (pdf)  are only intended to start the journey toward universal public safety wireless communications interoperability for all of Oregon’s public safety agencies. SIEC’s adoption of the standards listed in this plan is a recommendation to facilitate interoperability and there is no intent or action of the SIEC to mandate such use. SIEC and the State of Oregon encourage Oregon’s public safety agencies to develop interoperable communications systems that encompass all of the elements of public safety.
