Connecticut Town Contracts Federal Engineering for Radio Review
Monday, October 15, 2018 | Comments

The town of Simsbury, Connecticut, awarded Federal Engineering a contract to conduct an assessment and inventory of its public-safety radio system and evaluate the future radio system needs of the town.

Federal Engineering will perform an analysis of the effectiveness and efficiency of the existing system, which shall include both core equipment and subscriber equipment. The analysis will also assess repair and maintenance operations provided for the radio systems and how these should be modified. The consulting firm will then make recommendations relative to upgrades or replacement of existing communication systems and provide the associated cost estimates.

“Radio communications are crucial to the day-to-day operations of the Simsbury Police Department, Simsbury Volunteer Ambulance Association, Simsbury Department of Public Works and Simsbury Board of Education,” said Melissa Appleby, deputy town manager. “As such, we were looking for an experienced consulting firm that could conduct a thorough analysis and make recommendations for improving our radio system. We are confident that Federal Engineering’s work will provide tremendous support as we prepare for potential upgrades or replacement of our public-safety radio system."
