The October SECB meeting was held in Otsego. It was followed by a special panel session on a public safety broadband LTE pilot network. Emergency Communications professionals from across the state were invited.
Shari Gieseke, a member of the newly formed SECB Education and Outreach Workgroup, attended. She posted photos of the event on her flickr account. She also writes: Members of the Central Region of Minnesota were able to get their hands on the latest broadband technology during what was termed 'Industry Day'. One Central Region member stated, "I was excited to see some of the new tools that will be available to help us do our job better!" It was great to see the number of vendors who participated in this project. Obviously a lot of time and hard work have taken place to make this successful, and that is exactly what will be needed as we move into the future.
The SECB's goal is to provide reliable, interoperable communications for public safety responders, Minnesota citizens and visitors.
In January, the SECB adopted a Strategic Direction based on outcomes of a Strategic Planning Session held in September 2014.
