L. R. Kimball Public Safety Communications Technology Practice Joins Federal Engineering, Inc.
FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA, October 17, 2016 — Federal Engineering (FE) today announced it has reached an agreement with CDI Infrastructure LLC to add the L.R. Kimball public safety communications consulting practice to its service offerings. With the addition of several dozen L.R. Kimball public safety consulting professionals, FE is now the only firm in the nation with decades of experience providing a full range of both Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and wireless communications consulting services.
“The need for jurisdictions to obtain a broad range of consulting from a single firm is becoming vital as radio, data, and 9- 1-1 services become more integrated. With the addition of the Kimball public safety team, Federal Engineering has become that firm. Kimball’s land mobile radio and PSAP consulting practices significantly expand and complement FE’s public safety communications consulting. Our clients will benefit from their established capabilities in enhanced and next-generation 9-1-1 (E9-1-1 and NG9-1-1) planning, design, and integration, as well as the firm’s critical depth in Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Records Management Systems (RMS), GIS, governance, and wireless communications,” said FE President and CEO Ronald F. Bosco. “Demand for these services has been growing rapidly and with this addition, FE is the clear choice for public safety agencies. Agencies can now rely upon one firm for virtually all of its consulting needs in E9- 1-1, NG9-1-1, PSAPs, Emergency Call Centers, and Emergency Operations Centers as well as all voice, data, broadband, backhaul, and emerging LTE mobile communications systems.”
This alliance agreement provides the structure for FE to work with existing Kimball clients to ensure a seamless transition as Kimball’s public safety employees are integrated into FE.
Federal Engineering has been supporting first responders across the nation with premier public safety consulting services since 1983. FE’s land mobile radio practice has grown to one of the largest in the industry with clients in almost every state and several countries. Over the past few years the firm has expanded its practice offering clients independent consulting services in PSAP planning, design, and implementation including NG9-1-1, E9-1-1, CAD, RMS, AVL, and other PSAP systems. Demand for these services has been growing rapidly and by adding L.R. Kimball, FE can meet that demand with experienced staff and methodologies proven over 20 years.

In addition to its public sector work, Federal Engineering provides design and implementation support services for dispatching centers as well as voice, data, and video communications networks used in the transportation and utilities industries.
