Posted: Updated:

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Brunswick County officials are preparing to take their services to the next level.

Emergency services received its final shipment of VIPER radio identifications. Officials are now trying to get everything up and running so responders can use the new state system.

"What this means for us is we are going to be on a state of the art radio system with brand new, dependable equipment that's going to allow us to connect all the various responders that need to talk to each other in an emergency," said emergency services director Anthony Marzano. "It's something we have struggled with in the past."

The county received more than 1,000 radios for the upgrade.

This new system will allow Brunswick County to tap into New Hanover and Horry counties.
