Background: The Cayman Islands is now home to the most modern radio system for public safety and emergency communication in the Caribbean. The upgrade from the existing Public Safety Radio System to the new Motorola P25 Public Safety Radio System will integrate all public safety radio users on a common platform to enable greater interoperability and inter-agency collaboration. The mission-critical radio system, its infrastructure and accompanying accessories have been installed at various locations across all three Islands. The West Bay radio bunker is one of three new radio frequency sites where the equipment has been implemented. This event will serve as the official opening of the new site, as well as the rollout of the new Public Safety Radio Communication System.
