New radios for first responders

I was extremely happy to read that the EMA Director, Larry Butcher, was establishing a new and upgraded emergency radio dispatch system.

I am confident that Mr. Butcher will execute this operation with professional swiftness. I first met Larry on the Krueger gridiron, and then played against him when he went to RogersĀ and I as at Elston. We were brothers forĀ more than two decades on the Michigan City Fire Department and he definitely is the right person to head the La Porte County Emergency Management Agency.
