Camp Blanding Participation
Remote Location Participation
Florida’s Division of Emergency Management undertook an effort to design, conduct and evaluate a statewide interoperable communications exercise entitled “Operation RADAR II”.
During the multi-day exercise emergency communication teams utilized mobile communications units and work from Camp Blanding in Northeast Florida to establish communications networks between one another and County Emergency Operations Centers and Public Safety Access Points located throughout the state.
This exercise was designed to fully integrate multiple communications systems located across Florida into an effective emergency communications network.
- Identify shortfalls in resources, limits in capabilities, and conflicts in planning for interoperable communications.
- Demonstrate the ability to communicate throughout the emergency response community and establish interoperable voice and data communications between federal, state, and local first responders.
- Evaluate response partners’ ability to share necessary, appropriate data in all environments.
- Demonstrate that all response partners can effectively share information between communication modes.
The Operation RADAR II Exercise was held on February 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 2013, at Camp Blanding Florida.
