Originally aired: Thursday, December 6, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for First Responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities First Responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet.

Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute on-demand webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

Public Safety Dive Teams Display, Demo JW Fishers Equipment at Association Conference

March 05, 2018  | 

Public safety diving teams are called to action for a variety of missions, responding to emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They may be required to dive in the middle of the night, during inclement weather, in zero visibility, or through polluted waters. These selfless men and women are often given very little to time to plan a search and rely solely on their team members, training, and specialized search equipment. JW Fishers seeks to provide these teams with the right tools for the job with the same mission-focus and devotion; any time, rain or shine.

In 2014, Detective Bill Nichols, team leader for the Oneida County (WI) Public Safety Dive Team, along with a group of like-minded Public Safety Scuba Divers from agencies around the state of Wisconsin formed the Midwest Public Safety Divers Association. These divers came together with the support of their agencies to create a resource network that could support public safety dive teams in the Midwest by opening communications to share information training, equipment, operations, and policies.

In 2015, the association held its first annual conference in Stevens Point, WI. The third annual Midwest Public Safety Divers Association Conference took place in 2017 and once again was an enormous success.

Detective Nichols is a current user of both JW Fishers Pulse 8X and SAR-1 underwater metal detectors. During the conference Bill had his search equipment on display for other divers to view. The Pulse 8X underwater metal detector has been rated #1 by U.S. Homeland Security, according to JW Fishers. The SAR-1 was introduced to the market in 2017. Specifically designed for "black water" operations, the SAR-1 is a great tool for teams that must succeed when visibility and dependability are a factor and failure is not an option.

The Washington County (MN) Water Recovery Unit was also in attendance at the Midwest Public Safety Divers Association Conference. Part of the Water, Parks, and Trails Unit, the team is responsible for underwater search and recovery operations that have been directed or requested by the sheriff.

At the conference, the Washington County (MN) Water Recovery Unit demonstrated the capabilities of its JW Fishers ROV (remote operated vehicle) to public safety dive agencies with great success. The ROV is equipped with sector scanning sonar (SCAN-650), which assists with search operations in low-visibility search operations. The team also utilizes a JW Fishers Side Scan Sonar system that they train with regularly.
