With our hot temperatures now, do you remember last February when Central Oregon was hit by a major snowstorm, causing major power outages and even a disruption in 911 service? Well, 911 Dispatch Supervisor Rick Silbaugh says they will be upgrading the system to ensure another 911 outage won't happen. "So we're installing a redundant power supply, or backup system that in the event that any one part of it goes down, everything will be shared amongst the other units. So it'll give us a little more redundancy, a little more back. And we've also identified the need to test, on a routine basis, our back up center which is across town, and all of our systems that we have in place." Silbaugh says the County has approved the $70,000 for the upgrades in improvements.  The work should be done in the next few weeks.
