UPDATE: Radio Communications In City Disrupted

Work continues to restore normal communications after a major failure of the Saint John public safety radio system over the weekend with a disruption in transmissions.

If you have a scanner, that's why you weren't able to hear anything. A limited number of backup channels were used in the meantime. Emergency services in the city are still operating on backup and the problem is not expected to be fixed until sometime this afternoon.

The city tells CHSJ News there was a failure in the primary radio system that's used for the dispatching of emergency calls and claims public safety was not jeopardized.
System provider Bell Mobility says it's working to restore the primary service as quickly as possible.
