Salisbury Fire Department & Others Take to the Air in 1950

An advertisement in the American City (March 1950) notes that the entire town of Salisbury has gone to G-E.  With the fire department, taxi company, rural electric co-operative and public service company equipped G-E two-ways radios, there was instant communications between headquarters and field units.

Fire Chief W. Austin Moore., Sr. had installed equipment in his car, giving him instantaneous control of the Salisbury Fire Department apparatus.  Lem Dryden at Dryden Taxi had increased the revenue of his 11-cab fleet, due to faster service.  The Choptank Electric Cooperative and the Public Service Company were also able to dispatch repair and maintenance vehicles much more quickly, around-the-clock.
