The final phase of the Public Safety Radio Project is proceeding despite extensive delays related to State and Federal permitting, as well as national impact from the COVID-19 Corona Virus.
The Public Safety Radio Communications System includes upgrades to the Camden County E-911 Center along with three new towers and equipment installation at a fourth site with goal of providing county-wide coverage for all public safety radios, including Camden County Fire Rescue, Camden County Sheriff’s Office, Kingsland Fire and Police Departments, and St. Marys Fire and Police Departments.
The Woodbine Tower is the last tower under construction. All other sites are substantially complete including towers at Fire Stations 15 in the Browntown area of southwest Camden County and Fire Station 17 in Waverly in addition to the new infrastructure and equipment at Camden County Fire Rescue Headquarters on Gross Road in Kingsland.
“Years of collaboration and hard work from all of Camden County’s public safety partners is coming to fruition with the completion of this final tower,” stated Chuck White, Director of Emergency Management. “We are happy to improve communications with our first responders, allowing us to provide enhanced service to all Camden County residents.”
The completion of this project improves communications while ensuring survivability during severe weather. The Public Safety Radio Communications System received funding from both SPLOST VII and SPLOST VIII.
