Justin Evans, Radio Systems Manager, Montgomery County Hospital District
Mr. Evans is the Radio Systems Manager for the Montgomery County (Texas) Hospital District. Montgomery County is a northern suburb of Houston, Texas, and covers over 1,100 square miles including two major north/south highways, several major railroad lines, a major recreational lake, and a national forest. Within that geographical area, the district’s radio system also provides communication support for law enforcement, fire, and other public safety/service entities. In this position, he is responsible for the operation and maintenance of two 800 megahertz (MHz) simulcast systems and a very high frequency (VHF) simulcast system. Mr. Evans also oversees the district’s other communication networks including an extensive microwave network used for point-to-point communications between the various radio system components and the telephone and voice over internet protocol (VOIP) systems for all the district’s facilities. He is involved with, and has served on, multiple committees, taskforces, coalitions, user groups and panels focused upon improving public safety communications. Mr. Evans firmly believes that building relationships, sharing information and best practices is what public safety communications is all about. He currently serves as an active member of Federal Partnership for Interoperable Communications participating in the ISSI/console subsystem interface (CSSI) Working Group to improve ISSI/CSSI. Mr. Evans played a key role in the county’s adoption of input flow control (IFC) 510 which requires emergency responders have radio coverage in new buildings including enhancements and testing to ensure the protection of public safety radio systems.
