911 Radio Project

Detailed System Designs Approved, Licensing Proceeds

The Department of Emergency Services has signed off on detailed system designs from Harris Corp., the emergency radio system vendor, and Alcatel-Lucent, which will be making upgrades to the microwave network used for the County's emergency paging network.

Both companies were required to submit detailed plans outlining proposed engineering and system designs. Approval of the designs is necessary for each company to move ahead with the project. Each company can now begin manufacturing/acquiring necessary equipment to complete their portion of the upgrade.

Harris Corp., the radio system vendor, is required under contract to provide at least 95 percent coverage, 95 percent of the time. That’s the same standard used for the existing system.

Alcatel-Lucent will be upgrading the redundancy and resiliency of the microwave network.

Other key updates:

  • The County has secured system design approval for the needed radio frequencies from Region 28 of the FCC's Public Safety & Homeland Security Bureau. Region 28 covers York and many other surrounding counties in Pennsylvania. Region 20 (District of Columbia, Maryland and Northern Virginia) is now reviewing the County's plans, a process that's necessary before the County can formally pursue licensure from the FCC. Securing the necessary licenses in the 700 MHZ band is a critical component of the radio project, which was mandated by the federal government.
  • The County is working with the owners of communication towers to amend existing leases to accommodate the new equipment necessary for the radio and microwave equipment.
  • The County Commissioners on June 4 approved a $26,225 contract with JG Contracting to conduct structural analysis on eight communication towers. The analysis are necessary to ensure that the towers can accommodate new equipment needed for the radio and microwave project upgrades
  • Department of Emergency Services staff has met with many of main first-responder organizations to provide a summary of the project. These organizations include:
    • County Police Chiefs
    • County Fire Chiefs
    • County EMS Organization
    • County Fire Police Organization
    • Township Managers’ Association
    • Local Emergency Management Coordinators
    • Borough Managers' Association

An example of the new portable radio to be used with the new 911 system is now available at the Department of Emergency Services, 120 Davies Drive in Springettsbury Township. Please make sure to stop by and see Lisa at the main reception desk during normal business hours.
