County secures $6 million for radio network

NIAGARA COUNTY: State awarded grant to boost interoperability.

The state has awarded a $6 million grant to Niagara County for its emergency communications upgrade.

The grant, from the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Service, Office of Interoperable and Emergency Communications, is supposed to help close gaps in National Interoperability Channels in New York and ensure county communication systems are capable of supporting multi-jurisdictional response.

The county has been working with the state to improve its emergency communications system and submitted a comprehensive plan for the state’s review this past summer, according to county officials.
