The Lancaster County Commissioners unanimously approved the contract to replace a nearly 50-year old radio system on Feb. 29.
The system is for first responders to communicate with each other during an incident, including responders in Chester County, Pa. and in Maryland.
ARINC won a $2.6 million contract in December to provide Chester County electronics for the county’s digital radio paging network.
Harris Corp. won a contract in January to provide first responders in Montgomery, Ala. and Montgomery County a digital radio system.
More than 1,500 first responders will use the system, according to Harris.
