Placeholder Image
Kershaw County is close to meeting a federally-mandated Dec. 31 deadline concerning emergency communications. The mandate grew out of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and further solidified following Hurricane Katrina’s punch to New Orleans. The key word is “interoperability,” but it may not mean what some people think it does.
