Metropolitan Radio Management Committee

The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County and the Nashville Electric Service embarked on a project to purchase, construct and operate a 800 MHz trunked radio system to improve emergency dispatch and response throughout the county.  In 1997, the Metro government and Nashville Electric Service entered a Memorandum of Understanding which included a provision for a joint committee to manage the access to and operation of the 800 MHz trunked radio system.  In 1999, the Metro Emergency Radio Management Committee was established by executive order of the mayor to provide an organized structure to manage the radio system.  The committee is now subject to Executive Order No. 018, which pertains to the creation of the Metro Emergency Radio Management Committee, and to the currently committee-adopted operating procedures.
