2 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Communication Unit Leader (ComL) Attends a 3 day DHS approved ComL training class Certified DHS ComL instructor NC AHIMT Type 3 credentialed through SIEC credentialing process Increasing NC AHIMT Type 3 ComL cadre thru credentialing process Approved by SIEC, SWIC and Branch Managers NIMS compliant Background in public safety and/or communications Deployed to Branch Offices, incident site and/or local jurisdictions if requested for disasters or exercises

3 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Communication Unit Leader (ComL) Responsibilities Planning and managing technical and operational aspects of the communication function Preparing ICS-205 Establishing needed capabilities Requesting personnel and equipment Responsible for subordinate positions until those duties are delegated

4 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Communication Unit Technician (ComT) Attends a 5 day DHS approved ComT training class Certified DHS ComT instructor NC AHIMT Type 3 credentialed through SIEC credentialing process Increasing NC AHIMT Type 3 ComL cadre thru credentialing process Approved by SIEC, SWIC and Branch Managers NIMS compliant Background in public safety and/or communications Deployed to Branch Offices, incident site and/or local jurisdictions if requested for disasters or exercises

5 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Communication Unit Technician (ComT) Responsibilities Supports the technical activities of the Communications Unit Radio/System coverage Radio programming Maintenance and repair Gateway management Cache management

6 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Auxiliary Communication (AUXCOMM) NC AUXCOMM RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service) MARS (Military Auxiliary Radios System) ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service)

7 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Auxiliary Communication (AUXCOMM) POC is NC AUXCOMM Coordinator Over 600 members statewide (all NIMS compliant) Staff NC EOC during disasters and exercises Deployed to Branch Offices during disasters Deployed to local jurisdiction if requested Provide intra-state and interstate communications HF Communications to FEMA over FNARS (FEMA National Radio System)

8 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Auxiliary Communication (AUXCOMM) UHF (Ultra High Frequency) Usually line of sight communications (blocked by hills or large buildings) VHF (Very High Frequency) Long range communications (several counties) HF (high frequency) Very long range communication (across continents) WinLink (HF non-internet ) data sent over HF (send from NC to CA using radio)

9 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets NCEM Satellite Communications Trailer

10 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets NC Satellite Communications Trailer Capabilities.98 meter auto acquiring satellite dish One mounted wireless data access point Two portable wireless data access point (extends coverage) One 24 point Ethernet switch for wired connection to data network One VoIP telephone server with five wired and 5 wireless phones

11 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets NC Satellite Communications Trailer Deployable for disasters/exercises Preferred if requests made through Area Coordinator/Branch Office Request can be made to NC EOC to facilitate quick deployment

12 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets

13 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets High Frequency/WinLink Drop Kits Portable voice and data capabilities High Frequency (HF) transmission only Deployed in the field for disaster/exercises Utilized during Hurricane Arthur on Ocracoke Island Voice and data information sent back to RCC-E and the NC EOC

14 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets VIPER Mobile Towers

15 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets VIPER Mobile Towers 5 VIPER Mobiles Towers across the state Stand alone system (does not expand VIPER network) VHF UHF ACU-1000 (Gateway to connect disparate radios)

16 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets VIPER Mobile Towers Deployable for disasters and/or exercises Requires special towing equipment Requires VIPER technician to set up Contact NC EOC to request Provides own Talkgroup assigned to the tower

17 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Radio Trailers (RT)

18 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Radio Trailers (RT) Each Domestic Preparedness Region has an assigned “host” county for the RT Typically deployed for planned events but can be assigned during a disaster to supplement response communication operations at the local level Request for an RT can be made to the NC EOC Requesting agency and host agency work out pick-up and drop-off details RT 7, Charlotte UASI, is an F250 loaded to the gill with comms

19 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Radio Trailer’s (RT) 44 VIPER radios 20 VHF radios 20 UHF radios 20 Family service radios Tactical ACU-1000 (connects disparate radio) Batteries for all radios Honda 6.5 kw portable generator

20 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets DPR 7 Radio Truck 100 portable 800 MHz radios 30 VHF radios 30 UHF radios Portable Sat Phone VHF repeater UHF repeater Batteries for radios 700/800 repeater

21 North Carolina Emergency Management North Carolina Deployable Communication Assets Radio Caches Each NCEM Branch Office has a 30 radio (800 MHz) cache that can be utilized for disaster and/or exercises to supplement operations communications Requests for these caches can be made to your NCEM Area Coordinator or the NC EOC
