ARINC Concludes Phase 1 Testing of Emergency Radio System for Lancaster

Arinc logoARINC has completed the first phase acceptance test of an emergency responders communication system for Lancaster, Pa.

The acceptance tests and background noise demonstrations support the county’s $20 million public safety radio system replacement project, ARINC said Thursday.

During the tests, ARINC’s P25 public safety radio system worked with multiple commercial radios and was able to provide radio coverage in various building conditions.

County first responders and four radio manufacturers also verified the P25’s clarity capabilities during a background noise demonstration, the report said.

ARINC used the P25 in two running fire trucks, two smoke clearing fans, a chainsaw and a generator.

The P25 system “enables fire fighters and other first responders to avoid the breakdowns in communication that can hinder effectiveness,” said Michael Weaver, Lancaster County 911 director.
