Tri-Valley cities join East Bay communications system

Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore have taken initial steps to join the East Bay Regional Communications System, which comprises public agencies within Contra Costa and Alameda counties.

"The key to a successful response and mitigation of any type of disaster that could impact the Bay region is a coordinated communications system," said Alameda County project manager Bill McCammon.

The system would provide public safety and general government communications for day-to-day operations and serve as an inter-operable system in region-wide emergencies.

The total system cost is estimated at just over $60 million, and more than $17 million in federal grants have been secured.
