I was at the Piston Power Autorama in Cleveland today and the CPD had a PR booth inside the front door. I asked one of the Officers there how he liked their new radio system and his answer was: "Ask me Monday night or Tues Morning after St. Patty's day. That will be its first real test."
Interesting response from the officer. I wonder what's going to be different about St. Patty's day from the other Events.
Cleveland has a group of TG's (PD, Fire, EMS, Towing, Parking) and Command Bus setup specifically for Special Events. If there is a new Command Bus, you would think it should be even better equipped to do all of the command and control. Plus, if the weathers good I'm sure the Helo's (eyes in the sky) will be up.
I've monitor the Special Event groups for Indians, Browns, Cavs, Holidays, POTUS visits, etc... The radio's have never been an issue.
You'd think they'd have it down to a science by now.
