Regional collaboration is a key component of successful strategic planning within Oregon and ensures local solutions meet local needs yet support Oregon's "system of systems" approach to interoperability. Regional Interoperability Committees (RICs) bring together stakeholders within a specified region to focus on regional emergency communications issues and collaborate with each other on topics such as land mobile radio, alerts & warnings, and public safety dispatch. RICs are designed to bring emergency managers, 911 professionals, police and fire chiefs, EMS personnel, radio system managers, and elected officials together to address these complex issues and advocate for their region's needs up to the state. Formalized RICs are given the opportunity to report directly to the SIEC at quarterly SIEC meetings and provide input into the development of the Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan.
