Davidson County is working on a plan to revamp its public safety radio system to make it easier for EMS, fire, and other first responders to share information during emergencies.  Two 480-foot VIPER towers will soon be put in and activated, allowing all first responders in the county to better communicate during emergencies.  “Police officers and paramedics and firefighters would have the ability to communicate with one another with one radio,” said Terry Bailey, director of emergency communications.  First responders in the county currently use a VHF system which is more than 40 years old.
