This article emphasizes the need for improved interoperable communications among first responders especially during major crises. It is noted that the standardized Project 25 digital technology in land-mobile radio (LMR) networks used by crisis response teams was not designed to support easy roaming and has been slow to evolve. To address the problem, the author sees an important application of the Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology in public safety networks to allow a faster and more cohesive response in cases of national emergency.
