UVALDE — Uvalde is getting an upgraded emergency communications center — and it won’t cost taxpayers a dime. But the improvements won’t cure the radio “dead spots” that hampered the police response to the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School.

The nonprofit National Emergency Number Association will remodel the city’s communications center, which was established after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and has been in need of improvements for years. It serves the Uvalde Police Department, EMS and the Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office.
