Fire radio panel urges change in equipment

January 17, 1993|By Bill Talbott | Bill Talbott,Staff Writer

Eight members of the Carroll County Radio System Replacement Committee met Thursday and recommended that the county continue to look into the feasibility of replacing the present fire radio communication system with a new 800-megahertz program.

Howard "Buddy" Redman, chief of the bureau of emergency services operations and a staff member of the committee, said those present at the meeting reviewed four letters from companies interested in designing the most efficient system of radio communication for the county.

He said the committee recommended that three of the four be asked to design a new system and submit a proposal to the county for review.

The companies requested to submit specifications and costs for a replacement system are System Integration Inc., Ram Communication Consultant and SSA Inc.

The committee was authorized to apply for about 20 800-megahertz frequencies with the FCC and filed the applications last week, Mr. Redman said.
