The Collier County Sheriff’s Office has authorized a communications team to assist with hurricane recovery in northern Florida.

Justin Koval, the communications technical manager, and Ricardo Garcia-Jimenez, the communications radio equipment technician are going to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, according to CCSO.

Given how vital public safety communication is for hurricane recovery, Koval and Garcia-Jimenez’s mission is to help public safety communication restoration efforts.

Koval and Garcia-Jimenez are bringing a mobile radio system, portable radio tower and a mutual aid dispatch interoperable communications unit.

They will stay at the Lake County Sheriff’s Office until they get a post-hurricane deployment assignment.
