Title: Emer Service Radio Communications Needed
Post by: Law101 on March 07, 2007, 04:29:09 PM
 

I had a conversation with a Mr. King with ATT, regarding our county's need for towers to put antennas on.  He is going to pass it on to others in his company.  He gave me contact numbers for two other cell phone companies.  He also suggested we contact our local electric provider and see if they would be willing to put antennas on any of their existing towers, or poles.

If this could be done, would it help solve the radio dead stop issues?

I have a friend that one of the phone companies pay monthly to put a cell phone tower on his land. I don't know much about it . I know that he just renogiated his contract though and got more money. It isn't in Pulaski county though.

from what I understand they normally lease the land to put a cell phone tower up on.  If they add any other antenna to it, they charge a rental fee and electricity fee.  I am trying to get them to put up a tower on land that would be leased for practically nothing, if they would be willing to put the extra antenna on it for free. 

We have landowners out here in Big Piney who would be willing to do this.  I am sure there are other people in other areas of our county who would also be willing to do this if it would improve emergency communications in their areas.

Oh no sweetie, your posts help alot, maybe the phone company where your friend is at would be willing to put up an emergency tower on it for free, it never hurts to tell everyone and then ask......

Pulaski POST is also putting on a Fundraising Golf Tournament and karaoke contest in May to raise money for new radios for the sheriff's department.  If you want information about it, just PM me and I'll get you everything you need.

I believe the Department of Homeland Security provides grants for emergency communications.  That's an area the Sheriff's Dept could look into.  Grants are free money and sometimes free equipment.

If you need help filling out the grant applications I am sure we could find someone with experience to help with that.  I know you don't even have a secretary to assist you.
