Emergency Communication System Done Early

Laramie, WY – A $50 million project to unify and
coordinate Wyoming's public safety communications during an emergency should be completed about two years ahead of schedule.

WyoLink was originally scheduled to be completed in 2010. It is now expected to be done next year. WyoLink support manager Martin McCoy says completing the project early saves money.

McCoy says the final stage of the project is in the western and northern areas of the state. The rest of the state is covered now, though there may be some pockets that will need to be addressed.
