“Element Mobile was glad to help out with this project. Ensuring that our local public safety officials have solid communications is a critical issue,” said Jackie Shea, public relations manager for Element Mobile.

The Waupaca County Emergency Shelter used to be a dead zone for cell phones. But no longer, thanks to Element Mobile.

Element Mobile’s technical services team recently completed the installation of an indoor antenna that boosts signal and provides 3G cellular services throughout the building.

Andrew Carlin, director of the Waupaca County Emergency Management Team, said the new system creates peace of mind for the community to know that there is up to date communications equipment in its emergency management facilities.

“With the new antenna system my cell phone now has full bars in the courthouse basement,” said Carlin. “This new improvement has greatly helped our team, we are very grateful for Element’s generosity and assistance.”

The Waupaca County Emergency Shelter is the agency in charge of response and recovery efforts relating emergencies and disasters throughout the county. The shelter is also used as a public outreach center to educate the community on potential hazards within the county. Prior to the antenna installation, multi-carrier cellular devices had little or no coverage in the building. The new antenna is located in the basement of the building, which serves as an evacuation area for the community during a natural disaster.

“Element Mobile was glad to help out with this project. Ensuring that our local public safety officials have solid communications is a critical issue. Helping keep the community safe and alert is a priority for Element Mobile,” said Jackie Shea, public relations manager for Element Mobile.

Element contributed 70 percent of the $22,000 cost to install the new antenna system in for the shelter.
