There will be multiple connectivity interruptions  during this time frame that will cause the system to go into site trunking.

Dispatchers will need to be ready to use back up radios/walkies during this outage. Although the consoles will remain connected, they will not be usable on COIRS talk-groups during site trunking & walkies must be used.

Field units will receive the “SITE TRUNKING” notice on their radios, but can continue to operate on their normal talk-groups. System roaming will be turned off during this time so that units won’t get separated onto the Delaware side of the system. Delaware County users will not be affected during this outage.

Hard Rd Tower Off-Line

The Hard Road tower site has been taken off line as of 9am today. This site will remain off line until the system upgrade cut over set for December 9th. Users will notice diminished in-building coverage along the Scioto River corridor and in areas of Historic Dublin.

Due to the size of the equipment shelter and the fiber optics used to connect this site to the network, it had to be taken off line while Dublin IT and B&C Technicians complete hardware upgrades.
