The future of emergency radio transmissions is quietly going up in a snow-covered field in Henrietta Township.

Workers are installing the first of a series of 330-foot ARMER radio towers, the acronym for the Allied Radio Matrix for Emergency Response.

A multi-million dollar statewide conversion to narrowband radio equipment is underway that will transition all systems by Jan. 1, 2013. The interoperable system will use either ARMER or a VHF digital signal.
