Emergency services, such as those offered by the fire department and police department, are often taken for granted.
People never really question what they’d do without them because most assume they’re services that will always be there.
But suppose for a minute that the police and fire departments lost radio service and were no longer able to communicate with one another.
What would happen then?
That’s a question that was posed during the last council meeting when councilors discussed the county radio and fiber infrastructure study.
County IT Manager Laura Gonzales gave council a briefing on the study before turning the presentation over to representatives from Crestino Telecommunications Services.
Gonzales told council that in July 2008, the funds for the study became available and the study actually began a couple of months later, in September.
“$550,000 was allocated for the project, but less than half has been used to date,” Gonzales said.
According to county documents, the county analog-based system currently being used is aging and failing. Additionally, increased functionality for digital data transfer continues to rise.
