Montgomery County's emergency communications system gets a boost
(Gaithersburg-AP) -- Montgomery County is redesigning its
emergency response capabilities.
County Executive Doug Duncan says improving communications is a
step forward in homeland security efforts.
The multi-channel 800 Megahertz system is among the first in the
country to fully integrate police and fire radios. Some of the
major components include an enhanced 9-1-1, computer-aided
dispatch, an automatic vehicle locator and a navigational system
inside all public safety units.
The 175 (m) million-dollar system has been in development for
seven years. Officials say it replaces an outdated 30-year-old
radio system that no longer meets the need for total coverage.
The project is housed in the 9-1-1 Emergency Communications
Center in Gaithersburg.
