Why does the Emergency Radio System in Clackamas County need replacing?
➤ The existing emergency radio system is out-dated and prone to failure.

➤ Built in 2000 with 1990 technology, vendor support for the system is ending in 2017.

Whose issue is this?
➤ This isn’t a City, County, or Fire District issue.
➤ This isn’t a fire issue or the Sheriff’s issue or a city police department’s issue.
➤ This is a public safety issue for all the citizens and agencies that need a single system; a single system that works every time, regardless of where you are in Clackamas County – at home, at work, at school, at play or travelling the roads.
➤ The public safety radio system is at the core of a strong, unified public safety response system from the 18 public safety agencies serving Clackamas County.
