For Immediate Release May 27, 2010
The cities of Fairlawn and Norton and the Townships of Bath and Copley announce that they have been awarded a $720,000 grant from the FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. Each community will be matching the award with $20,000 for a total of $800,000. This regional project will improve radio communications in the four communities and the west side of Summit County which will enhance the safety of our employees.
The project is a partnership between these four communities with the Summit County-Akron Radio System. The grant funds will be used to make improvements to the exisiting radio tower located in the City of Fairlawn, expanding the coverage of the county-wide 800 Megahertz radio system. These improvements will also enhance the inoperability of Summit to Medina County radio communications. The project should begin in late summer and be completed in less than 12 months.
Scott Dressler, President of the Board, stated "that this is a great example of regionalization to solve a problem which enhances safety and radio interoperability for all communities".
Sharon Troike, Bath Township Fiscal Officer, stated "This will improve important mission critical communications for our community during emergency operations".
The communities are grateful to FEMA and all our local elected officials who worked on our behalf securing this award. For more information, please contact Michael Benson, Fire Chief of Copley Township at 330-620-2048.
