The Southeast Georgia Regional Radio Network Working Group Governance and Operational Structure was adopted on March 9, 2010 at a meeting in the Glynn County EOC.
Purpose: The purpose of this document is to describe the governance and operational structure of the Southeast Georgia Regional Radio Network (hereinafter referred to as “SEGARRN” or “the Network”).
Background: SEGARRN is a regional, interoperable 800 MHz digital trunked radio network for use by all public safety and local government agencies in southeast Georgia which have, or in future will, execute the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) developed to comply with the requirements of the Public Safety Interoperable Communications (PSIC) Grantee-Subgrantee Agreement for funding awarded to Chatham County, Georgia in 2008 by the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Fiscal Year 2007 Homeland Security Program/State Homeland Security Grant Program.
SEGARRN builds upon efforts to develop interoperable communications which were formalized in two earlier Agreements: “Intergovernmental Agreement Between Chatham County and the City of Savannah, Georgia for the Construction and Management of a Joint City/County Radio Communications System” entered into in December 1996, and the “Public Safety Communications Network Participation Agreement” entered into on October 18, 2005 by the City of Savannah, Chatham County, and Effingham County.
SEGARRN’s goal is to complete build-out of a regional interoperable voice communications network throughout Southeast Georgia by 2012.
