Help appreciated

To the Journal editor:

On behalf of the Tri-Township Fire Department and Fire Board (Ewing and Turin townships in Marquette County and Maple Ridge Township in Delta County) we would like to express our sincere appreciation to the 911 committees, central dispatch centers and the sheriff’s departments of these counties for their support and cooperative effort concerning emergency communications for the Tri-Township Fire Department.

Serious deficiencies and complications concerning the paging system developed for the department requiring purchase of new equipment to rectify the issue.

Members of these committees assisted in the procurement, installation and testing of the apparatus once installed to insure the problems were resolved.

Reports back from the firefighters indicate that our paging system is a “thumbs up!”

Many thanks to all those involved.

Dave Hall, chairman

Tri-Township Fire Board
