West Milford officials recently incorporated a $2.9 million federal grant to fund a new radio system for the town's police and emergency responders.
According to the article “same radio system as state police” NJICS. Unsure at least from what I read, but it seems all services will be moving. If I had to take a wild guess, based of how things are for lowband, of course that can change….1 Channel PD dispatch, 1 channel fire dispatch, 1 channel ems dispatch. Outside of that, who knows…Any idea on what kind of radio system it'll be?
Probably be tied into the NJICS West Milford site.
There is no such site. A subsite of the Passaic cell was planned for that location years ago, however it was eventually scrapped. Whether or not they once again plan to build a subsite in the area based on this $2.9 million remains to be seen.I don’t believe New Foundland is up/online yet…
The article stated "The new communications system will also be linked to the New Jersey State Police and allow for easier communication with neighboring municipalities.", it did not explicitly state that it would be the "same radio system as state police".According to the article “same radio system as state police” NJICS.
They mention "new antennas and infrastructure" in the articles, so it's certainly possible that they'll be building a subsite for the Passaic cell in the area, perhaps just not at the originally planned Bearfort Mtn location.
PS - @NParkNJ you might be confusing the Echo Lake Stables (aka Newfoundland) subsite with the originally planned/later scrapped Bearfort Mtn (aka West Milford) subsite that @Alarmguy mentioned.
