Port Commission Approves Mobile Emergency Radio Equipment


The Port Commission of the Port of Houston Authority approved the purchase of Motorola equipment at its March public meeting, including radios, batteries, chargers and related hardware under the Houston-Galveston Area Council’s cooperative purchase program.

Port Houston’s operations, emergency management and security personnel use radio technology equipment to maintain operations and security at all terminals and respond to incidents and other emergencies. This equipment is used as employees carry out assigned tasks.

The HGAC cooperative program was established in 1973 to enable government entities to obtain purchasing pursuant to the Texas Interlocal Cooperate Act.

Port Houston strives to safely protect and secure people and commerce.

In an average week, the Port Emergency Dispatch Center handles 876 calls for service, records 78 vessel movements and processes 57 gate requests.
