Boone County’s 911 dispatchers have moved into their new facility.
Director Chad Martin says they’ve got more space now compared to the old downtown facility, and more ways to respond to your emergencies faster.
“Once we get our staffing levels up, we’ll be able to assign more call-takers to the calls that are coming in.”
Martin says he’s looking to hire 15-20 more people for the 911 call center. Voters approved a permanent sales tax hike for 911 improvements in 2013.
