911 center weathers storm

July 15, 2012
Parkersburg News and Sentinel

From 1 a.m. June 29, 2012, to 1 a.m. June 30, 2012, our 911 center handled 1,220 calls as compared to 529 calls between the same dates and times in 2011. Consider these facts with those statistics; we handled almost triple the amount of calls with less phone lines operating, normally 10 lines but down to four, with the same number of dispatchers that answer the calls on an everyday basis, and without any known consequences.
