GETS and WPS for Southern Maine Healthcare

  • GETS are the Government Telecommunication Service
  • WPS is the Wireless Priority Service

All hospitals and Medical Facilities are eligible for these 2 programs. They will give individuals that ability to make a prioritized call during an emergency. GETS works on land lines and the land line part of a cellular call, and WPS works on Cell Phone calls.

To set up your hospital please first download and view this informational Power Point Slide Show. After viewing go to this web page and register a point of contact for your facility (this should most likely be the Emergency Preparedness Director). In a few days you will be contacted regarding how to set up an account and register your facilities users. You will then be instructed on the set up process and eventually sent cards and access numbers.

In general SMRRC would recommend all top Command Staff of HICS + NHICS have these and possible a few other positions and or (section chiefs). You should limit this to who really needs it in regard to their position in ICS. These can be given out to individuals or to "fixed" positions within the system such as a role.

The point of contact (POC) for each medical facility will be responsible for:

  1. Billing (there is a fee for use)
  2. Training of staff on how to use (there is no fee to test the cards)
  3. Inventory of all cards to make sure who has and they are valid
  4. Periodic account verification of all users.
  5. This includes an e-mail verification of all accounts and also validation of call made during the verification period.
