Edmonson Voice Staff Report
The fiscal court voted to approve the application of a Homeland Security Grant from Emergency Management in the amount $29,380 for three new radio consoles for EC dispatch.
EM Director Pat Prunty said the current radio consoles are working and are good units but need some serious updating.
The consoles that are now in use look more like 1985 Texas Instruments home computers, and Prunty said new units would be modernized and computer based. Two radios are currently in use and the grant will hopefully fund three new ones, or close to it.
"They're actually not as old as they look," he said jokingly. "They're pretty solid, but just like everything else, we have need to stay updated with technology. Hopefully this grant will take care of this project."
