Federal Engineering to Consult on Oregon County’s Radio Upgrade
Monday, October 21, 2019 | Comments

Tillamook County, Oregon, awarded Federal Engineering a contract to assess the county’s public-safety mobile radio system and assist with the implementation of upgrades.

John Spence, Tillamook County project manager, said the county, in collaboration with Tillamook County Emergency Communications District, operates a series of disparate VHF radio systems that provide voice communications and dispatch services for law enforcement agencies, fire and ambulance services throughout the county. The system was pieced together over many years and was not designed or built as a countywide or regional system supporting multiple agencies. Rather, it only satisfies the most basic requirements of public-safety dispatch.

The manufacturer no longer provides enhancements or improvements to the existing system and stopped producing replacement parts. At some point there is a possibility of system failure that cannot be remediated.

Federal Engineering will support the county’s project to upgrade the systems through five phases: assessment, recommendations, engineering design, construction management and implementation of the new system.
