People living in Belmont County can now rest assured that the county’s 911 service is completely up to date with state requirements.
Back in 2016, 911 services, across the Buckeye State, were given two years to comply with rules and regulations introduced by the Public Safety Answering System.
Belmont Count was the first 911 service in the state to be officially recognized for meeting all of those standards.
Director Belmont County 911, Bryan Minder said, “There should really be no question as to what kind of service we provide. We are compliant with all of the rules that are out there and they should expect nothing but the best when they call for help.”
Belmont County Commission, JP Dutton said, “It give testament to our voter as well. The 911 Levy funds part of the operation at the center and because of that support they are able to operate in this manner. So again it’s a good use of tax payer money, and they are really making the most of those funds, really standing out across the state for the work they do.”
Some of the updated regulations included emergency power, emergency medical dispatch and training.
