Alaska Land Mobile Radio

Project Brief

The Alaska Land Mobile Radio (ALMR) Communications System is an independent radio network for emergency responders in Alaska during critical emergencies like the November 30, 2018 earthquake near Anchorage. ALMR consists of 86 dedicated wireless radio communication sites along Alaska’s highways, marine highway, and remote mountaintops. It is a cooperative effort between federal (both DOD and non-DOD, state, and local governments and tribal entities serving 20,000 subscribers. ALMR serves 156,600 of Alaska’s total 663,267 square miles, providing secure communications separated from traditional telecommunications systems, essential for emergency response. ALMR is supported by an interagency user council and an executive council. ALMR Provides Alaskan public safety first responders with interoperable communications that are cost effective, reliable, and adhere to national standards for public safety land mobile radio.
