Houston's outdated fire and police radios will now finally get a much-needed overhaul. The Houston city council approved a multi-year, $100 million plus contract for new emergency response radios. The current system is more than a quarter-century old.

Installation is expected to start in two years and when it's complete, both county and city emergency workers will be able to communicate with one another.
