Work on the Bradley County Emergency Communications District’s backup 911 center is continuing. The 911 Board heard an update on the project during a recent gathering.

911 Board Chairman Troy Spence said a communications expert is scheduled to visit in early May to work on the backup 911 center. Sherri Maxfield, who was named 911 director at the meeting after having served as interim director since Jan. 1, said she doesn’t anticipate the router that will send calls to the backup center will be in place by the time that person arrives.

Spence said the radios are in, as is the equipment to hook them up.

When all work is completed, it will allow the backup 911 center to have the same capabilities as the primary 911 center, he added.

In addition, Maxfield said training has been held at the 911 center for the new computer aided dispatch system. She said the go-live date is still set for August 30th.
