FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA, May 20, 2013 — The City of El Paso, Texas has awarded Federal Engineering a follow-on contract to assist with the procurement and implementation of the City’s P25 public safety radio system.
Mr. Ronald F. Bosco, the firm’s President stated: “Federal Engineering was selected in August 2011 to assess the needs of El Paso’s first responders, develop an understanding of existing systems and their capabilities, and generate recommendations for improvements to the City’s public safety mobile radio infrastructure. At the conclusion of this program, FE recommended a six-site, 15-channel P25 radio system which would support both 800 MHz and P25 VHF radio communications allowing users on both bands to communicate with each other. The City approved FE’s recommendations and is moving forward with the procurement and implementation phases of the program”.
