Province Announces Work on Emergency Radio Network

 
 

ALBERTA: Work on a new province-wide first responder radio system will begin immediately.

At the moment numerous agencies around Alberta use different communication systems, making it extremely difficult to coordinate during emergencies like the flooding we saw last year in Southern Alberta.

The new system will connect all emergency responders across the province including police, fire and ambulance. It will also be used for day-to-day operations by the RCMP, municipal police, sheriffs and emergency medical personnel.

The new system, which will cost roughly $370-million, should be in place by 2014.

A majority of that cost will go towards putting new towers in place and retro-fitting those already there to make sure there's full coverage across Alberta.
