D.C. public safety system working again
The radio communications system used by the D.C. police and fire departments that shut down Monday night has been restored.
Fire department spokesman Pete Piringer said there was a sudden halt in radio transmissions about 7:15.p.m. and continued for at least three hours. Service was back to normal around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Police and fire department officials said they patched together backup systems to send needed messages. Piringer said the agency borrowed radio frequencies from Montgomery and Arlington counties.
