Carroll County: Emergency system

State to put money into 911 upgrade

The Maryland Emergency Number Systems Board will spend nearly $1 million to replace, improve and expand Carroll County's 911 emergency system, which handles nearly 60,000 calls annually. Carroll's 10-year-old system, which was becoming difficult to maintain, will be computerized and expanded by four stations to a total of 10, with two stations devoted to training - at no cost to the county. Verizon will install the upgraded system in the County Office Building by March. The numbers board is funded through the 25-cent monthly fee charged to all phone customers in the state.
