Oswego County- The Central New York Interoperable Communication Consortium (CNYICC) has released a new video summarizing the latest E-911 radio system now being constructed by nine counties for improved emergency communication. The video production, sponsored by Motorola and produced by SUNY Oswego students, is available for viewing on YouTube and the Oswego County E-911 Web site.
"Member counties have invested millions in the radio system which covered new radio communication towers as well as new handheld radios and mobiles for emergency responders such as police, firefighters and EMS," said Mike Allen, Oswego County 911 Program Coordinator. "The CNYICC video is very well produced as it presents a great amount of detailed information about the creation of a regional communication system."
The new integrated communication system currently links Oswego, Madison, Cayuga, Cortland and Onondaga counties. CNYICC is an agreement between these counties to share in costs and develop an interoperable communication system for the safety of Central New York.
The video is a Great Laker Communication Production by SUNY Oswego and is narrated by local TV and radio personality, Rick Gary. The lead writer and assistant writers include SUNY Oswego students Dan Frohm, Joe Salvatore and Shaune Killough with support from Marybeth Longo, visiting professor and student coordinator.
