Moore County has completed the process/plan mandated by the NC 911 Board to establish a back-up E-911 center.
This plan was required by the NC 911 Board to ensure continuity of operation in the event of disaster or damage to the primary E-911 center.
Moore County Department of Public Safety applied for NC 911 Board grant funds to purchase and install the necessary equipment for the back-up center. The grant from the NC 911 was for $586,404.
Funds from the NC 911 grant were also used to purchase Locution Computer Automated Voice Alerting System. The benefits of Locution include increasing the efficiency of the 911 dispatchers and improving dispatch and response times.
The Locution implementation is scheduled for the beginning of 2018.
