Large grant approved for Webster County EMA

Posted: Updated:

Webster County Fiscal Court recently approved the purchase of $35,000 worth of communication consoles for the EMA Command Center.

The new equipment will improve Internet connectivity and provide a mobile repeater system should the primary system ever fail.  Officials say the whole system should be installed and operational within the next month.

Jeremy Moore, Webster EMA Director said, "But we'll also be able to talk to the national guard and all of the area counties, well also be able to take this unit throughout the commonwealth as needed or as requested. So it'll be able to benefit not only the county but the whole state.
