POPLARVILLE – Highland Community Hospital in Picayune has donated radios to the Pearl River Community College Police Department.
PRCC received nine radios, chargers and accessories after Highland changed radio systems.
“We’ve got four radios that we feel like we can use on a consistent basis,” said Dr. Adam Breerwood, vice president for the Poplarville campus and Hancock Center. “We have to change some frequencies, but this will help us a lot.”
Wayne Landers, director of public safety at Forrest General Hospital; Terry Martin, corporate director of public safety for Forrest Health; and Charlie Fazande Jr., operations lieutenant at Highland, formalized the donation Friday, Feb. 17, with Breerwood. Fazande orchestrated the transfer, Landers said.
“We wanted to share them with somebody who could use them,” Landers said.
Officials with Highland Community Hospital in Picayune and Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg met with Pearl River Community College officials Friday, Feb. 17, to formalize the transfer for police radios from Highland to PRCC.
