A few days after learning from a reporter that Barrow County Emergency Services was lacking a radio transmitter to back up emergency fire communications, Jackson County’s director of public safety loaned one to Barrow County.
“It’s the very same radio they had that went bad,” said director Steve Nichols. “They’ll have to reconfigure it so it can function on their frequency instead of ours. A radio shop can do that. It’s a couple-hour procedure, and they should be done with it.”
