The Lancaster County commissioners unanimously approved the contract. The county’s current system technology is more than a half-century old. ARINC will provide a system that includes a Cassidian Communications CORP25 network, Zetron dispatch console system and support for multiple manufacturers’ radios. The system will allow local emergency responders to communicate together during incidents, as well as communicate with Chester County and Maryland responders.
“Hundreds of police, fire and emergency medical responders must be able to rely on a radio system that supports their life-saving work,” said Marvin Ingram, ARINC’s senior director of public-safety communications. “Not only will the system we build support their mission, but we will help do it in a responsible, cost-efficient way for the taxpayers of Lancaster County.”
In December, ARINC was awarded a $2.6 million contract to provide enhanced electronics for the Chester County public-safety digital radio paging network.
