Radio Communications Interoperable Communications Initiative

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) serves a 16-county region of North Central Texas, which is centered around the two urban centers of Dallas and Fort Worth. The lack of Interoperable Communications has long been a barrier to effective inter-agency communications given the need for a multi-agency response, whether for a natural or man-made disaster, or for day-to-day operational incidents calling for response from another department or agency, or from another jurisdiction.
