ARINC Tests Lancaster County Emergency Response System; Beth Leek-Lantz Comments

ARINClogoARINC has completed the first phase of tests under a $20 million contract awarded to the company last year for a new emergency response communications network in Lancaster County, Pa.

The company aimed to evaluate the P25 radio system’s ability to maintain connectivity between different devices under adverse conditions, ARINC said Thursday.

According to ARINC, the transmission line passed the assessment and intends to help agencies exchange information and extend immediate assistance to surrounding areas.

“We are very pleased that Lancaster County is as excited as we are about the overall progress of the project,” said Beth Leek-Lantz, ARINC director of public safety and enterprise solutions.

Michael Weaver, Lancaster County 911 director, said the new system will work to prevent network breakdowns and help first responders speed up delivery of public emergency services.

Lancaster County intends to replace an old radio system it has used for more than three decades and ARINC has started to prepare for the second phase of the contract.
