Jimmy Gianato, the director of the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security, looks at his state's new IP-based emergency response system designed to link radio systems with voice and data services.

CHARLESTON, W. VA. -- Last week, West Virginia's Homeland Security Division became the first division in the country to adopt Verizon's new integrated emergency response system that is designed to pull all emergency-response radio systems, along with voice and data services, into a common IP-based network. The system, known as the Verizon Communications Interoperability Solution, uses routers and other customer-premises equipment to convert all designated radio signals within the emergency response system to IP. Thus, police, firefighters and emergency medical service providers will be able to communicate, even though they use different radio frequencies to talk through their individual devices.
