FE is providing public safety communications consulting services to many jurisdictions similar in size to Lewis County and the firm understands the issues associated with local and county public safety radio networks. FE has intimate knowledge of the radio environment throughout the state of New York, with recent involvement in radio design, implementation, and interoperability programs at the county, region, and state level, for Cortland County, Chautauqua County, Essex County, the Onondaga County/Syracuse Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI), the Monroe County/Rochester UASI, and the State of New York.“
Mr. Ronald F. Bosco, Federal Engineering’s President stated: “Our New York based project team has up-to-date experience analyzing, designing, and implementing voice, paging, and data radio systems; evaluating and managing the implementation of communications sites; and researching spectrum availability. We have the experienced staff to provide all of the services required, and our in-house quality review board brings a high-level management perspective to this engagement. FE’s deliverables will address recommendations for the current radio system including anticipated deprecation, obsolescence of the current system, and recommended upgrades in equipment to meet current and anticipated needs.
