MARCS System portable 2-way radios generously donated to The Ravenna Police Department by The Ohio Turnpike Commission will have a welcome and significant impact on our communications capabilities.
Our police department manages The City of Ravenna Communications Dispatch Center serving not only The City of Ravenna Safety Services, but also 8 other fire/EMS departments. In the interest of communications interoperability and the improved reliability of the MARCS System, we anticipate the distribution of the MARCS portable 2-way radios to immediately enhance our operations.
We are deeply grateful to The Ohio Turnpike Commission for the 2-way radio equipment they provided. As we make improvements to our communications center, this donation moves us much closer to our interoperability goals. Thank you Ohio Turnpike Commission !
