every person within the Department of Fire and Rescue. The new equipment, information

systems, and resulting operational changes will have a profound effect on the way we

currently do business. With these changes will come inevitable stresses on the

organization and the individuals impacted. A successful transition will not happen by

chance. A successful transition to the new radio system will require a successful

implementation plan.

The purpose of this applied research is to develop a successful implementation

plan for a new $21 million state-of -the-art 800 MHz trunked, digital radio system.

Research was conducted using trade magazines, technical reports, and textbooks to

determine historical background information regarding radio communication systems.

Personal interviews were conducted to solicit input from other departments that have

already implemented similar radio systems. I hope to build on their experiences and

successes and avoid pitfalls and mistakes others have encountered. An action research

methodology was used to answer the following questions:

  • 1.

    How have other departments implemented new 800 MHz radio systems?

  • 2.

    What features should be incorporated into the technological upgrade of the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue radio system?

  • 3.

    What are the major issues associated with transitioning to an 800 MHz radio system?

  • 4.

    How will the changes to an 800 MHz radio system impact fire and rescue operations?
