In an overwhelming show of support 65% of voters approved King County Proposition 1.

“I want to thank the voters of King County for acknowledging the need to replace a dangerously outdated system and ensuring that our first responders have the tools they need to communicate during life-threatening emergencies,” said Executive Dow Constantine in a statement last night.

The new Puget Sound Emergency Radio Network (PSERN) will have better features such as improved ability for police, fire, EMS and other first responders to communicate with each other during emergencies, coverage in more areas within King County and allow more first responders to use the radios at the same time.
