Fire Depts Testing Radios

Residents may notice an increased presence of their local fire departments out in many Greenville County communities. There should be no concern. These fire departments are doing field strength assessments for their new radio system. These assessments are not done during set times, but will continue through the fall. The new radio system, Palmetto 800, enhances public safety interoperability for emergency and disaster response coordination. Field assessments are necessary before these departments join the Palmetto 800 Radio System.
