PUBLIC SERVICES & EVENTS
Emergency Communications Support is a Not for Profit Organization that provides and maintains the 40' Silver Eagle bus for serving the community.
The communications bus is a fully functional demonstration of various means and methods of combining technology integration with human interaction. The bus can be seen at many public service events such as The American Diabetes Association, 100 mile bike-a-thon, Louisiana Special Olympics, Women's Wellness Center Triathlons and Kids Triathlons, Army, Air Force, Marines/Navy MARS Forums, (Military Affiliate Radio Systems) and many others. ECS is our way of supporting the community.
The technologies demonstrated on the bus allow agencies with any type of radio equipment to communicate with each other. The systems will link communications from an area with no power or towers to a headquarters any distance away using the fastest technology available with backup systems several layers deep. Video conferencing and remote viewing from mast top cameras will give better insight to events at the local areas. The
ECS demo bus displays systems that are scalable so that small agencies need only acquire the equipment they need to link to other systems to have remote communications.
ECS communications system demonstrates its' potential to aid in communications for first responders, police, fire, EMS, Hazmat, and any other local,
state or federal agencies. Chemical and refining plants, hospitals, utility and service companies, search and rescue, all have specific needs to expedite
safety and restoration procedures.
ECS recently ran communications for the Celebration of 100 years of Boy Scouts. With nearly 7,000 people attending the communications
covering the 1,665 acres at Camp Avondale near Clinton, LA.
The event was several days long and very eventful. On Saturday there were Black Hawk Helicopters and ECS was even given permission to talk to the USCG helicopter upon arrival and departure.
