Hall County 911 Center upgraded with new flooring, work stations

Employees at Hall County's 911 Center have moved back into their upgraded space after spending the past several months in another portion of the County's Emergency Services Complex while work was taking place on the 911 Center.

The new 911 Center is now outfitted with 15 new work stations and a new, raised floor, allowing wiring and duct work for heating and air to run underneath the Center.

"Since the 911 Center operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the carpet flooring was in desperate need of repair," 911 Director Gail Lane said. "The HVAC system underneath the new, more durable flooring also allows us to heat and cool only the Center on holidays, nights and weekends, which results in significant energy savings for the rest of the building."

Lane said energy efficient lighting was also installed.

The new work stations replace 12 older models and allow 911 operators to move their desks up and down in order to stand up and stay alert, something that is imperative for such a crucial component of public safety that requires 12 hour shifts.

Assistant Hall County Administrator Marty Nix said the old work stations are being reconditioned and put up for sale as a way to recoup costs on the project.

"We always strive to make the most fiscally responsible decisions possible, and this is an opportunity for us to not only offset expenses but also extend the life of the Hall County Landfill by repurposing these older models," said Nix.

The upgrades were voted on by Hall County voters with the approval of SPLOST VII in March 2015. They are a part of a larger overhaul of the county's 911 system, which also includes upgrades to the Center's phone and radio console systems.
