Area law enforcement are constantly training, updating their training, and preparing for active shooter situations like the one Wednesday in San Bernardino, California.

Should something occur locally, the Greater Cincinnati Fusion Center inside Hamilton County's Regional Emergency Operations facility in Price Hill, is ready to help coordinate resources, and it would get support from other Fusion Centers across the country.

Hamilton County Commissioners are deciding how to pay for emergency communications as current revenue sources shrink.  Before they vote, they want to hear public input on a possible solution.

While Cincinnati City Council looks into its emergency communications operations following a recent television news investigation, Hamilton County is offering one possible solution.

Commissioners Wednesday approved a resolution supporting a joint city/county emergency communications center.

Commissioner Greg Hartmann says this is a great opportunity for shared services.
