FOND DU LAC (WKOW) -- A new statewide radio network for emergency responders was unveiled in Fond Du Lac on Monday.
"WISCOM" allows emergency crews across the state to talk with each other through one network.
"You're not going to have to wait until they show up at a staging area, handing off radios or working out logistics. The day will come when we can say go to state talk group four and they'll be talking the minute they leave their station and en route to our incident," says Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski.
Only a handful of departments will be using WISCOM by the summer.
It's expected to take several years for all agencies across the state to be on board.
