That's why they use radios now

by island-guy    Jan 18, 2009, 3:56 AM

Most Police, fire, and other agencies that would be first-responders already rely on hand held two-way radios for their primary communication devices. A majority of them also use Nextel as a secondary line of communications because it offers instant walkie-talkie communication (hands-free for receivers)and Direct-talk if network coverage is not there. I think this is a good idea but will probably be at the bottom of the list for any money the president will have left to play with.
