New emergency communications system adds to public safety

Original post made on Apr 6, 2012

Next month, public service agencies in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, including Pleasanton, will move seamlessly into a new emergency responders' coordinated radio system that will allow instant communications across jurisdictional lines. This system will improve safety, eliminate duplication of overlapping independent systems, provide effective interoperable voice communications and enable the new East Bay Regional Communications System Authority (EBRCSA) to provide improved public safety services.

We are finally getting public safety agencies on the same page. I'm a little diaappointed that you didn't mention one of our own, Pleasanton resident Bill McCammon retired Alameda County Fire Chief who has been leading this effort from the beginning. He is the East Bay Regional Communications System.

Thank you Bill. Now maybe you can help us reform the out of control pension system. Bill McCammon:

Monthly pension $16,218.15
Annual pension $194,617.80
