CARY, Ill. — The Cary Fire Protection District is planning to switch its fire alarm system for commercial buildings and agencies such as schools to the wireless radio system used by the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District.
The current system in Cary connects 65 local fire alarms via telephone line to a central board in the Cary police building, which then sends the signal to SEECOM regional dispatch center in Crystal Lake, said Cary Fire Lt. Andy Veath.
