On Monday, all fire departments in Shelby County, as well as emergency services, converted from old-fashioned analog radio system to a narrowband digital system.
“We actually went to this new system at ten a.m. this morning,” said Shelbyville Fire Chief Kevin Baker.
“It’s a switchover that was actually mandated by the federal government,” he said. “We were mandated, we had to do it. Today was the deadline, everybody did it today. We haven’t had any problems so far, no bumps or anything.”
