Radio Communications

Radio Service staff maintain and service a network of 22 communications sites throughout the county that provide first responder radio coverage.

Additionally, they provide local trouble-shooting services (and limited technical assistance) to outside vendors to assist in identifying and making emergency repairs when equipment fails in the Communications Center.

In 2019, they continued maintenance of mobile, portable and fixed base radio equipment for the county and agencies supported by contract.

The Radio Services Administrator manages the Homeland Security equipment grants. This includes researching models, purchasing equipment, preparing/maintaining records, and includes installation of anything pertaining to the backbone communications system. (Contract records are maintained by the 911 Communications Center Office.)
