The author discusses the evolution of radio communications in rescue operations. He states that voice transmission is the most essential part of public-safety communications. Compared to the radios with long antennas being used in his favorite police, military or fire drama series, modes of communications have evolved with the use of text messages, mug shots or surveillance videos. He also cites the transformation of the magazine from "Mobile Radio Technology" to "Urgent Communications."
