Franklin County Emergency Communication System:
OPTIONS FOR THE FUTURE:

In the coming months the public safety community and town officials will need to decide on the future of emergency communications in Franklin County. To put it bluntly, the current system is failing. It is not meeting the communication needs for those who protect us. In an effort to inform you on the current situation prior to making this very important decision, please review the newest fact/update sheet by clicking on this link. In the near future the FRCOG will be hosting regional community meetings to discuss this issue in further detail.
