The City of Portland and the Portland Dispatch Center Consortium (PDCC) have initiated a project with GeoComm Consulting Services to work on Portland area's Interoperable Communications Strategic Plans Update and Public Safety Answering Point Feasibility Study Project. The PDCC will receive the assistance from GeoComm to update the region's Interoperable Communications Strategic Plan (ICSP), developing regional standard operating procedures (SOPs), and determining the feasibility of leveraging technologies through PSAP co-location/consolidation.

The PDCC stakeholder group includes: Clackamas County Department of Communications (CCOM), Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA), Columbia 9-1-1 Communications District (C911CD), Lake Oswego Communications (LOCOM), Portland Bureau of Emergency Communications (BOEC), Port of Portland Airport Communications Center (ACC), and Washington County Consolidated Communications Agency (WCCCA).

GeoComm will approach this extensive project in four phases that include project initiation, data collection, stakeholder interviews, ICSP development, regional SOP development, and regional technical and backup cooperation feasibility. The study will provide the foundation for 9-1-1 and interoperability planning and improvements and utilize strategies that support the City's Climate Action Plan and related sustainability policies and goals. The study is fully funded through a Department of Homeland Security Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) FY2011 grant.

The project will officially commence during the first week of October with a series of meetings and workshops. The Interoperable Communications Strategic Plan will be complete by the end of the year and the entire project will conclude within twelve months.
