Communication Tower

Emergency responders are hoping someday for sufficient radio communication in the Adirondacks.

Authorities often report radio communication trouble in the Big Moose, Eagle Bay, Inlet and Raquette Lake areas. Officials from the Inlet Emergency Communications Tower Committee recently began to address the issue—the need for adequate radio communications.

Officials say this project is one of the biggest infrastructure issues in the area. Officials said the committee began last fall the process of bringing an emergency communication tower to provide much needed coverage for those areas. According to officials, a tower site, an engineering plan and an APA application have all been secured, with hopes for a new communications tower by the fall of 2019.

The committee recently began their ‘Handshake Campaign’ and funding drive. The first meeting of the Handshake Campaign will be held from 12:00-3:00pm, Saturday, June 16 at the Inlet Emergency Services Building. The public is invited to attend, where there will be opportunity to learn more about the project.

Officials have a goal of $350,000 to be raised through the campaign, which will go towards the construction of the tower.
