Champaign County EMA was successful in obtaining donations from The Atkins Group, the Champaign County Fire Chief’s Association and the county MABAS((Mutual Aid Box Alarm System) 28 Fire Service group to purchase a sonar system for the County Dive Team. This sonar system will provide the Dive Team with the capability to search in deep water for persons, vehicles, and items and record findings for evidence.  On January 31, 2013, The Atkins Group formally presented the system to Lloyd Galey, Chief of the Cornbelt Fire Protection District and the County Dive Team.  A subsequent presentation was held at the Champaign County Fire Chief’s Association on February 14th in Homer.
