New radios to assist emergency services
(07/15/03) WILTON - Some new equipment may help local communities better respond to large-scale disasters. Now, all communities across Connecticut will be on the same signal in the event of a big emergency.
The state recently provided fire, police and EMS departments with the I-Tac I-Call radio. The town of Wilton received three of them.
The radios are part of a statewide emergency response system that allows all departments to communicate and coordinate resources. They were designed for command and control.
The Wilton fire chief said the town would be getting another unit for the dispatch center. The radios were paid for by a federal grant through the state homeland security division.
