  • The Oregon public safety community is working to improve wireless communications
    Bosley Butte Communications Site, Curry County
    Saving lives and protecting the public during a disaster, or during any day of the year, depends upon reliable communication systems that allow public safety officers and other emergency officials to talk to one another. Not only does new digital communication technology offer us the ability to protect lives, over the long-term it can reduce - and help avoid - costs of operating public safety agencies.

    The Oregon State Interoperability Executive Council is working to develop policy and guideline recommendations, identify technology standards, and coordinate intergovernmental resources to facilitate statewide wireless communications interoperability with emphasis on public safety.
  • The Oregon eFOG application is now available for your smart phone device

    I​n conjunction with the SIEC, Steve Noel, statewide interoperability coordinator and contracted staff from SAIC, Inc. have converted the state's Tactical Interoperable Communications Field Operations Guide into an electronic version available through the AppleTM App Store and AndroidTM  Market for free download.

    While in the app store, search "Oregon eFOG" and click on the FREE button.

    Be sure to download the Oregon eFOG Users Guide, as well.
