New York Fire Department Proposes New Idea For Cell Tower PlacementComments Off on New York Fire Department Proposes New Idea For Cell Tower Placement
After receiving much opposition to the plan proposed to construct a communications tower at the Quogue Fire Department, the district’s fire commissioners proposed a new plan last night. Members of the community believed that the tower would be a health hazard to both the fire department and the residents.
To appease the residents, the fire department scrapped the plan and proposed a new plan to install a solid steel pole with straight antennas and a new electronic siren behind the main firehouse. This monopole will reach a height of 100-feet. The fire district plans on paying for this new antenna and siren with its communication reserve funds and they plan to use about $185,000 to complete this project.
