The Maryland Joint Operations Center is the control center for local, state, and national interoperability channels.

This Wednesday in Ocean City Maryland, the Maryland Association of Counties Tech Expo will offer attendees the ability to test the state’s most advance public safety radio technology and make calls using portable, interoperable radios. You may register on-site to join this demonstration.

Gary Zamerski, Manager of the Maryland Joint Operations Center and Jack Markey, Emergency Manager for Frederick County will lead this demonstration. As described by Zamerski,

One of the MJOC’s vital operations is to be the control center for several local, state and national interoperability radio channels and their ability to monitor these channels is crucial for radio communications in Maryland. The ability to have their main resources packaged up to operate remotely is a major success for public safety communications in Maryland.

In addition to the interoperable radio demo, Wednesday’s participants will be able to test body-worn radios that provide audio and video feeds, and tour the Anne Arundel County Mobile Communications & Command Unit.

Jerry Napolitano of Motorola will be demonstrating body-worn radios that provide audio and video feeds, smart phone to radio communications, intelligence-led public safety solutions and advanced messaging all to keep citizens and first responders safer.
