July 30, 2020 – The West Valley Demonstration Project enhanced its security and safety by purchasing digital trunked radios that can assign frequency channels to various groups of users. The new devices can communicate with existing radios at the WVDP, as well as fire departments, local and state police and emergency medical services. WVDP programmed the new equipment to allow interaction with those emergency response organizations.
“Our old radios were more than 20 years old, and needed to be replaced,” David Schuman said, CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley Safeguards and Security Manager. “These new radios enhance our security posture and improve officer safety. Improving our ability to share and communicate information more accurately will help us to better handle any situation that may arise.” Link to article
