International struggles in public safety communications


Recommended Posts

As most of us know, Canada and the US share many border crossings. What many don’t know is first responders frequently have to cross the border into another country to provide mutual aid. This can cause a lot of complications in terms of radio communication, as agencies often have different radio systems that may not be compatible with each other. In the event of a mass casualty incident, this can put lives at risk. I’d like to hear if your country faces similar challenges, and how they try to mitigate them.
