Lessons learned: N.J. county to link emergency personnel

Plans to buy computer program to tie together radio frequencies
Newark Star-Ledger
NEWARK, N.J. — All of the radio frequencies used by Middlesex County police, firefighters and emergency personnel will finally be tied together, thanks to a $700,000 computer program the county plans to buy with federal Homeland Security funds, county officials said yesterday.

The "soft-patch program" is the most expensive item Middlesex County plans to acquire with this year's $1.3 million federal grant, Freeholder Christopher Rafano said.

"There's no question that one of the most important lessons learned from September 11 was the need to improve our communication ability," Rafano said.
