UNION, S.C. — Several county fire departments will get some help from the county in making their transition to the new narrowband system of radio communication.
In 2006, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandated that all non-federal public safety licensees operating 25 kHz (wideband) radio systems in the VHF and UHF bands must migrate to 12.5 kHz (narrowband) emissions on or before Jan. 1, 2013.

The Union County Sheriff’s Office, which is over the county’s emergency communications systems, has been working toward a transition to narrowband since 2009.
