Loud and Clear

Last year, the Maintenance Department for Cumberland County, N.C., spent $71,000 on 59 digital two-way radios with carrying cases. Supervisors like Albert Brunson can text-message each other, or call an individual, a group of technicians, or all technicians in the field simultaneously.

Maintenance systems specialist Milton Zandiotis, also known as the “Keeper of the Parts,” coordinates requests from technicians whether they're on the road or working in the basement of one of Cumberland County's 80 buildings.

Administrative assistant Peggy Price no longer worries about dropping two-way radio calls to or from supervisors and maintenance technicians working throughout 661-square-mile Cumberland County.
