Reed Tours Lincoln Fire Department to See New, Improved Emergency Communications Equipment in Action

9/22/2017 — 

After delivering nearly $650,000 in federal funding to help the Albion, Lime Rock, Manville, Quinville, and Saylvesville Fire Districts - along with the Lincoln Rescue Department - purchase new communications equipment, Senator Reed joined firefighters and public officials at the Lime Rock Fire Station in Lincoln for a celebration and firsthand look at the enhanced emergency communications gear. 

Thanks to the federal funding, local firefighters have 70 new portable radios, 26 mobile radios, and 9 mobile repeater units to enhance the speed and effectiveness of communication between the districts.
