Houston County's Emergency Plan

By  | 

Houston County is working on a plan if their system goes down.

The Houston County E911 had their advisory committee this morning.

Members discussed a plan if their dispatch equipment went down in an emergency.

Right now, if the primary and back-up systems go down, it will take up to 56 hours to get them online.

"One of those problems is having both systems located jointly in the event something happened at the Civic Center and took out them out then we would lose that back up generator which automatically effects our dispatching function," said Steve Collins.

The board voted to approve up to $85,000 to work on re-locating the back system.

It has not been decided where they are going to move it yet.
