Page County's multimillion dollar emergency communications system is expected to go online next month.
County Emergency Management Coordinator Kris Grebert gave an update on the system's installation to the county's emergency management agency commission at Thursday night's meeting. Grebert says the testing, which is expected to begin the week of October 8th, will require vehicles on the roads.
"The state has promised us they will have the signal brought from Adams County and Fremont County to Page County," said Grebert, "so, we will be able to test the radios that week. In our agreement, we have a two-week testing period. In talking with Motorola Solutions and Tusa (Consulting Services), the powers at be, we want to do a one-week test, which means we have to have two cars going at the same time.
