Ensuring the public's safety is among the most important functions of County government, and Delaware County, Oklahoma is no exception. From its life-saving 911 and paramedic services to emergency preparedness planning, the county needs to stand ready to help its community whenever the need arises.

Delaware County's public safety agency recognised the importance of a robust and reliable communication system to deliver on its mission of protecting and serving the community. But with its unique landscape, characterised by hills, lakes, and rural areas, the project brought its own set of challenges, such as signal interference, logistical difficulties in remote areas, and vulnerability to severe weather events.
