idestream, March 25, 2013

Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald has unveiled a plan to dramatically reduce the number of 9-1-1 call centers. ideastream's Nick Castele reports it's part of his long term effort to consolidate services among the 59 communities in the county.


Some Cuyahoga County suburbs share 9-1-1 call centers, but for the most part, each community has its own. If you call 9-1-1 in the county, there are 45 different centers that might answer.
