The North Central C-MED System 

North Central C-MED operates on a UHF (Ultra-High Frequency) two way radio system having full-duplex and biomedical telemetry capabilities.  The system's base stations are connected to remote terminals located in the hospital emergency departments by means of a Motorola MCC-5500 dispatch console.   This technology allows for the hospital and field radios to communicate with each other through the            C-MED Center.

The Center is operational and staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by highly trained Public Safety Telecommunicators.  In Fiscal Year 2002 - 2003 North Central C-MED processed  117,731 calls through the system.  North Central C-MED is actively involved in regional Mass Casualty Incident planning and coordination.  C-MED transmitter sites are located in Avon, Farmington and Vernon to ensure region-wide coverage.
