Update on Marin Emergency Radio Authority

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 8/10/2021


Agenda Item #7: The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to receive a report on the Marin Emergency Radio Authority (MERA). MERA provides crucial communications to 25 member agencies for both routine and emergency/natural disaster responses. The MERA radio communications system is the backbone of the 911 emergency response system, but it is approaching the end of its useful life. The Board approved the Next Generation System (NextGen) in 2015. The report will include an overview of the NextGen system implementation.


The Board received the report.
