Harris Providing Saudi EMS Communications System

Harris Corp. will deliver a public safety communication system to Saudi Arabia for emergency medical services in the country’s western region, the company announced Thursday.

The Melbourne, Fla.-based communications and contracting firm received an $8 million delivery order from Saudi Ericsson to provide the system to the country’s health ministry.

EMS personnel will use Harris P25 to exchange voice communications and data with each other.

Medical responders will have the company’s multi-mode and dual-band M7300 mobile radio and the P5500 single-band portable radio.

In the U.S., the company is helping a Florida run a pilot program to test wireless broadband technology for first responders.
