Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, July 1, 2015 11A Fine dancers Krista Marie Norris heads up her students as they demonstrate line dancing the Taylorsville Museum for Pioneer Days held June 13. Photo submitted near the front of Junkyard beauty AGREEMENT, from page IOA a routine radio message from one department interfered during the transmission of an emergency call from another department. This complicated network needed to be clarified to define how the new communication protocols would be enacted. "We had cases when fire departments had training nights for their paid and volunteer fire personnel. The problem was that departments were announcing this routine information using the same radio frequency as that used for 911 emergencies," said Waterman, thus potentially interfering with an emergency situation. That is one of the situations the new communications plan seeks to amend. In this instance a new protocol will be implemented: using the phone rather than the radio to make routine announcements or to send ' nonemergency information to personnel. Another primary aspect of the plan, as laid out in the document, is to assign clear responsibilities to department officials to make sure that the dispatch radio equipment in each fire district is compatible, that it WELCOME HIGH SIERRA MgSIC FESTIVAL ::is programme~teOrrectly and that it is compli~fit-~th, " : 443 Main Street, Quincy 283-4094 Federal Communications Commission regulations. Furthermore, the communications system document was designed to address concerns between departments by clearly defining the responsibilities of the Plumas County Sheriffs Office as an emergency call transfer dispatcher;Plumas County OES, which maintains licensing; and county fire department administrators who use the dispatch system. Official responsibilities were decided upon via a cooperative effort between the Communications Committee and the fire chiefs through back-and-forth correspondence over several months. "It helps everyone to understand where they fit within the system, which was not well-documented before," Waterman said. He said he expects that clearly delineating responsibilities and implementing new protocols will heighten the effectiveness of county emergency services. "The biggest advantage to standardizing procedures is getting everyone on the same page," Waterman said. Another objective of the Communications Committee, in conjunction with the communications plan, is to look at the infrastructure that the county is responsible for maintaining, in particular antiquated mountaintop repeaters that are in need of replacement. Repeaters are wireless electronic relays that provide a l~ne-of-sight link between different regions that do not have a direct connection: "Unfortunately, there.., :- aren't enough funds to replace them other than seeking grant money or raising money on our own," said Waterman. "We're hoping that the Board of Supervisors will be on board with this goal, too." In order to request funds, he said, "We needed a Lowest Prices of the Year for Exterior Painting!

Now that the "Coordinated Use of Countywide Fire Radio Communications System" document -- which also includes a compendium of countywide radio frequencies -- is completed, Waterman said he' expects Supervisor Sherrie Thrall, who is, a member of the Communications Committee, to voice the need to supervisors and county officials for funding.
