Nødnett is the new digital TETRA network for emergency and rescue services in Norway. The nationwide network is nearing completion to be officially opened in December this year. A key milestone on the way was the recent completion of 2194 fire vehicle installations. Now firefighters can co-operate across municipal borders as well as with other agencies - Police, Emergency Medical Services, Customs, Civil Defence, Red Cross and other rescue organisations - across Norway.
Here's some key statistics about this milestone, one of many parallel delivery projects in Nødnett:
Norway's Fire Services have 2400 Mobile TETRA radios in use…
2500 installations into fire trucks, boats and snowmobiles…
Completed on time..
..in September 2015.
Norway has 280 municipal fire and rescue units covering the 428 municipalities across the country. All fire service units are connected to Nødnett’s TETRA radio network through the 18 fire regions, each with a new state-of-the-art emergency 110 call centre.
At the end of the day it is all about enabling Norway's emergency services to do their job. Saving Lives.
