Communications System Upgrade for Newark First Responders

Jul 12, 2018 |

With the intention of improving public safety and protecting first responders, Wayne County, in cooperation with the Village of Newark, will be locating transmitters on the rooftop of the Village Municipal Building at 100 East Miller Street. These additional units will benefit police, fire, and EMS public radio system users by providing greater and more consistent communication services.

Fire Commissioner Al Schober stated, "This communication system upgrade will help the dedicated volunteers in our Fire Department immensely.” Police Commissioner Stu Blodgett added that, "The addition of this radio tower will enhance the ability of our Police Department and NAVA to respond to critical lifesaving situations.”

Mayor Taylor was enthusiastic about the upgrade being performed by Wayne County and their 911 Service Center, stating that "Any opportunity for the Village to share services with the County and improve public safety is a win-win for everyone!"
