Maryville (Village)

  • Police and Fire/EMS are dispatched by Glen Carbon Police dispatcher. (Fire/EMS toned out on 154.25, dispatch/ops on SC21)

Siren System Upgrade (4/8/12)

  • Global Technical Systems Inc. submitted bids which included one that would essentially replace the system at a cost of $64,650
    • Even with the $6,000 repair proposal, the village will be able to switch to a digital transmission system. That, then, will enable the Glen Carbon Police Department, which handles dispatching services for Maryville to activate the warning system, according to the Police Chief. Currently, Maryville’s system must be activated from inside the police station, which isn’t always easy when patrolmen are out at night.
    • Maryville’s emergency warning system is tested at 10 a.m. on the first Tuesday of each month.

  • Article - WR to dispatch 6 cities for Police

Interim Coordinator Burris introduced Wood River Fire Chief Brendon McKee. Chief McKee gave a presentation on radio needs and communication issues. He introduced Cory Heuchert from Edwardsville Fire Department and Stan Foiles with Data Tronics for any technical questions. He reported that after the East Alton PSAP consolidated with the Wood River PSAP the surrounding areas have had increased problems with radio communications. He spoke on: safety issues for fire and police personnel; technical issues; interoperability issues; possible solutions such as a voter analog system, Starcom, and a pilot program for a digital radio system; and costs. He asked the ETSB to be receptive of supporting a digital radio system in the immediate area (Wood River, East Alton, Bethalto, etc.) for use as a pilot program to then eventually implement across the County. The cost and scope of the project is still being evaluated. Mr. Petrokovich confirmed the issues the Wood River area is experiencing and spoke on radio communication needs to backup PSAPs
