Hanover unveils new emergency radio system

Posted by Iva Radman – email

HANOVER COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - Hanover County's new communications system will get an upgrade Wednesday to help emergency workers respond faster.

The other system was outdated and didn't always work in some of the more rural areas. That's why the county is rolling out a new $29 million radio system.

The radios are being tested all across Hanover to make sure emergency workers can communicate not only with each other, but with neighboring  counties and cities.
