Today, B&C Communications is completing the installation of emergency school radios at each of the Hilliard City Schools. These radios, often referred to as “MARCS in Schools” were installed in the office of each school to enhance security and provide a direct line of communication in the event of an active violence incident at the facility. These radios, which are among the first on the COIRS network, will be monitored by the Northwest Regional Emergency Communications Center. A protocol that includes an immediate and large scale response by both Police and Fire/EMS has been developed and implemented.

On Friday September 19th, Buckeye Power Systems performed repairs to the generator at the Huntley Road tower site. During a routine preventative maintenance check in August, technicians with BPS identified a coolant leak as the result of a bad seal. BPS performed emergency repairs, but recommended the unit be taken apart and resealed. Technicians performed that work on Friday and the unit is back in full service.
The very next day, there was an AEP transformer problem along Huntley Road which required the site to go on generator power for approximately an hour. The system performed as designed and users experienced no down time.
The Huntley Road tower is currently down. XO is being notified.
