Yazoo covers the largest area of any county in the State of Mississippi, USA. Their command & control center is a busy hub combining centralized dispatch for the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Office, Yazoo City, Yazoo Fire Department, and Law Enforcement / Police for the Cities of Yazoo, Sataria, Eden and Betonia in addition to 9 volunteer fire departments throughout Yazoo County.
EMA Director Jack Willingham and the Board of Supervisors had previously chosen an Omnitronics DX-Altus system to manage these complex communications. As their call volume increased they saw the need to add an extra radio position so as to respond more quickly and efficiently to emergency calls.

One of the main objectives of the new system is that Yazoo County needs to be able to interface to the statewide Mississipi Wireless Information Network (MSWIN) when the requirement arises.
MSWIN is a P-25 700 MHz trunked phase 2 Motorola LMR public safety communication system which is designed to provide 97% mobile area coverage statewide via multiple sites.
MSWIN is the only statewide interoperable emergency communication voice and data network available for use by both state and local public safety entities and connects all police, sheriffs, public safety, county, local state police, and fire departments through Tait TM9400 mobile radios .

The Radio Dispatch Solution
Best Suitable Dispatch Option
With the need to add a radio position, Yazoo County turned to Ozborn Communications for advice on the best suitable options to upgrade their system. As the County had previously used, and had been happy with an Omnitronics solution Ozborn Communications recommended they remain with Omnitronics but upgrade to a Redi-TALK Flex system.
The County preferred the graphical user interface (GUI) found in RediTALK-Flex and liked that the console interface is easy to use so operators could be quickly trained ensuring a smooth transition between systems. Remaining with Omnitronics also meant existing gateways could be reused, minimising the cost of the upgrade.
This was successfully implemented, comprising of 12 channels interfaced to the MSWIN statewide P25 trunked system via Omnitronics DRG100 gateways connecting 8 Tait TM 9400 mobiles and a combination of Tait, Icom and Motorola radios.
