  7. Interoperable Communications • Operational Considerations • Utilized previously formed committees and workgroups (DOJ, UASI, Regional 800 MHz, etc.) • Leveraged existing relationships • Engaged new participants (law enforcement, fire/EMS, federal/state/county/tribal/local, military, private sector business, etc.) • Ensured that operational requirements were the top priority (operational workgroups advise communications personnel of their needs and we attempt to meet them) • Followed NIMS protocols

  8. Interoperable Communications • Technical Considerations • Utilized several radio systems for the event week (Phoenix/Mesa for wide area use, Glendale for local use, DPS for air operations, AIRS for back-up) • Various system usage also spread capacity use among several systems • Due to disparate systems in use, programming of interoperability talkgroups a key technical requirement to allow users from various agencies to have interoperable communications (programmed Phoenix/Mesa interoperability zone and Glendale’s primary zone into numerous agency radios)

  9. Interoperable Communications • Technical Considerations Continued • Utilized gateways (Cisco IPICS) in a limited capacity • Moved away from patches to more shared talkgroups for better performance • Worked with wireless providers to coordinate mobile COWS • Close engagement with the NFL Game Day Coordination (GDC) group for frequency coordination and radio tagging • Obtained cache radios for agencies that could not program 800 MHz talkgroups into radios

  10. SBXLII Operations

  11. Major Venue Sites • Phoenix Hyatt Regency • Phoenix Convention Center (Media Center) • Westin Kierland Resort (AFC team – Patriots) • Tempe (AFC & NFC practice sites) • Wild Horse Pass (NFC team - Giants) • Sky Harbor International Airport • NFL Experience • Super Bowl XLII

  14. Lessons Learned/After Action • Following the event week, the Interoperable Communications Resource Workgroup will meet on February 7, 2008, to review operations • Information will be presented at the February PSCC meeting

  15. Super Bowl XLII – Game Day

  18. Motorola Cache Radios • Motorola provided over 500 XTS-5000 radios for use by our Public Safety agencies • Programmed with talkgroups from the Phoenix Regional Wireless Network and the Glendale Police Department • Special thanks to Motorola, particularly Larry Mabry and local Motorola staff

  21. Planning & Preparation • Begin preparing as soon as possible • We began organizing interoperability when the West Valley Law Enforcement Coalition (15 LE agencies) was formed. • This was 2-3 years in advance of Super Bowl • If possible, run the event like an expanded regular game (already have plans & SOP in place) • We used the NFL’s Phoenix Cardinal, NCAA Fiesta Bowl and the BCS Championship football games as “practice” for the Super Bowl

  22. The Crowd!

  23. Glendale Police, Phoenix Police, Arizona DPS

  24. Planning Considerations • Plan for close Law Enforcement/Fire/EMS integration • Coordination w/Fire & EMS was a weak link • Identify funds as soon as possible • More importantly, who pays & how • System key sharing requires a lot of planning • Governance • Get this worked out NOW • Funding source • Someone has to step up and make it happen • Programming • We contracted Motorola to program over a thousand radios

  25. CBP & Glendale SWAT

  26. Medical & Public Safety Aircraft

  27. Additional Considerations • Be aware of NFL requirements • Radio “tagging” • NFL “War Games” • Workgroups • NFL Frequency Coordinators • National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliance

  28. NFL “Media Wars”

  29. Tactical Operations Center

  30. Emergency Operations Center

  31. Communications • Talkgroup planning must be considered far in advance of the event • Very difficult to coordinate and meet the needs of so many sub-committees • Local coverage versus wide area coverage requirements • Communications must take a lead role

  32. Be prepared for an extremely loud environment!

  33. EOD Officers & Bomb Robot

  34. Glendale PD w/Patriots Team

  35. Talkgroup Planning • 61 “Known” Talkgroups for law enforcement & fire

  36. Arizona DPS & Stadium Security

  37. Arizona DPS & Glendale Fire

  38. Area Surrounding the Stadium

  39. Several Off-Site Parking Areas

  40. Final Thoughts • Be flexible! • Federal Agencies requirements • Joint Operations Center (JOC) • NFL requirements • Special Operations requirements • Tactical Operations Center (TOC) • Example: Homicide investigation across the valley
