Actually, I think it is more than two outages. Over the summer they had two or three in that one week.
Anyway, it should get a lot better once everyone is on ONE radio system (like it should be) not the mess they have now where police are split over two (High Band and 800) and fire over four (Low Band, High Band, UHF 400, 800).
Anyway, my personal solution would be to disband OC911 and let towns answer their own 911 or form consolidated dispatch centers among themselves, but that will never happen
That whole "single point of failure" thing is one thing that we in the broadcasting world work to make sure we don't have. I would certainly hope that any agency which is out there to save lives (Police, Fire, EMS) don't rely on a system with such a fail point, either.
