Johnston County 911 Director Brett Renforw

KENLY – Johnston County 911 and the Kenly Fire Department have partnered to improve public safety in the northern and northeastern sections of Johnston County.

Johnston County 911 Director Brett Renfrow said the Kenly Fire Department will allow the 911 Center to place at no cost, a transmitter repeater on an existing tower at the Kenly Fire Station. The transmitter will improve radio dispatch coverage in the Antioch, Bethany, Kenly, Micro, Pine Level and Princeton Fire Department areas.

Johnston County Commissioners, at their October meeting, approved a $64,793.85 contract with Communications International of Goldsboro for the two-way radio equipment. The equipment should be installed and operational by February 1, 2022.
