Calhoun's 911 system will be moving radio equipment to the new 400 foot tower at Broomstick Tuesday. Currently the transmitters are on a short tower less than 100 feet.

Calhoun 911/OES Director Kathy Wood says emergency radio service could be down at the site up to eight hours, but VHF radio service will still be operational.

Wood says she will be contacting county responders regarding the down time so they can made adjustments.

The new tower is expected to improve communications of emergency services throughout West Virginia and will also be used by Calhoun's 911 system for county responders, fire departments, police and ambulance service.
