Our client for this project, the Arcata Fire Protection District, partnered with fire agencies throughout Humboldt County to update multiple emergency repeaters, which are used to relay long distant radio signals. We coordinated the implementation of this project, beginning with an audit of existing systems. Following the audit, we prepared a plan for making needed upgrades. A subcontractor specializing in communications systems was hired to develop a new communications system, including repeaters and other devices. As a result, Humboldt County now has a more streamlined and reliable emergency communications system.
