Mobile Satellite Ventures added the sixth regional Satellite Mutual Aid Radio Talkgroup.

The CCCFPD will manage, provide 24x7 monitoring, and approve participation in SW-SMART by federal, state, tribal, and local public safety agencies—as well as appropriate private-sector users with a public-safety mission—located throughout Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
