What is WyoLink?

WyoLink is Wyoming’s Statewide, Public Safety, Interoperable Radio Communications System.

A Statewide System:  Participating public safety agencies within Wyoming are able to communicate within and outside their home areas, as they are on a shared radio system.

A Public-Safety System:  A system intended for the use of agencies whose mission is to protect the lives of their neighbors and respond to emergencies.

A Statewide System:  Public safety agencies will have direct communications, when needed, to operate with one another across disciplines and jurisdictions.

A Radio Communications System:  A system designed to exchange short operational voice and data messages, in real time. WyoLink is for mobile users, and is not intended to be a replacement for wire-line telephone systems, cell phones or full Internet access.

Multi-Agency Talkgroups (MATS):  Regional use of MAT talkgroups as Mutual Aid. By using the primary regional MAT talkgroups (7 regions), Federal, State and Local agencies have a resource for interoperable communications for all users. The WyoLink office has made provisions allowing these talkgroups to be available to all users.

Maintenance of the Infrastructure:  The WyoLink Support Office with the assistance of WYDOT Emergency Communications is responsible for maintaining the system infrastructure.  WyoLink includes a 24/7, 365-day monitoring system of all WyoLink infrastructure and systems.  The WyoLink Support Center is available 24/7 by calling 307-777-9565.

Coordinated Emergency Response

The primary concern of public safety agencies is the safety and protection of Wyoming citizens. The greater the crisis and the more dire the consequences, the more Wyoming public safety agencies need an efficient, coordinated response. 

To effectively aid the public, these agencies must function as a team. First responders need real-time communication to get the job done. Emergencies rarely respect geographic boundaries or jurisdictions. 

Public safety agencies from every level of service — state, local and federal — need day-to-day interoperability to be able to talk to one another.
