Butler County’s Information Services has notified BRICS that they intend to perform an upgrade to fiber network routing equipment at the radio system’s master site on:

Wednesday March 23rd, 1600 to 1630hrs

During this time, the fiber network that connects dispatch radio consoles to the radio system’s master site will be down and network resources (including all 800MHz talkgroups) will be unavailable. Radio system infrastructure and service for field users will be unaffected by this process.

Dispatchers will follow normal backup procedures, using backup equipment to continue communication with field users during the outage. Fire paging / station alerting uses local radio resources (not network resources) and should be unaffected by the outage.

Contact BRICS with any questions or problems.
