Black & Veatch professionals will perform a needs assessment of the county’s public-safety communications infrastructure, create a conceptual LMR system design, review proposals from LMR suppliers and provide the county with a system enhancement recommendation report.
“Black & Veatch professionals assisted in the procurement of our current public-safety radio system, and are well versed in our particular communications needs,” said D. Scott Rogers, deputy director, Nash County Emergency Services.
The current system consists of seven simulcast VHF radio sites using an array of technologies. Originally procured in 1999, the system has been upgraded intermittently. The backhaul system uses microwave, 900 MHz and fiber technologies for a public-safety radio system, police scanners and other radio transmitters/receivers.
Nash County is located in central North Carolina with a population of more than 95,000.
In August 2015, Black & Veatch acquired engineering and consulting firm RCC Consultants.
