Springdale fire and police departments could soon be communicating with better equipment.
The City of Springdale passed a motion to supply the departments with a new radio system in a committee meeting Monday.
“It’s vitally important that our folks be able to talk to each other, and this will also help with interoperability from a regional standpoint,” said Springdale Mayor Doug Sprouse. “Rogers is on this system. Fayetteville, I believe, is on this system. Both counties are either on it or looking at it.”
Sprouse said the committee will be voting on the new radio system as well.
