How LA-RICS improves public safety
The Land Mobile Radio (LMR) system allows first and second responders to communicate directly with one another on a day-to-day basis, replacing a patchwork of 40+ aging radio networks as LA County’s primary means of public safety communications.
The system provides increased coverage and capacity, and eliminates barriers to multi-jurisdictional responses by allowing police, firefighters and paramedics in the field to communicate directly with users outside of their agency.
Why install a radio site in my area?
Each site provides a unique coverage footprint, ensuring that first and second responders always have the ability to communicate with each other in your area, for faster protection and improved safety. It is anticipated that State and Federal agencies operating within the Los Angeles region will utilize LA-RICS for mutual aid communications.
