Fayette County 911 marks 20 years


FAYETTE COUNTY (WVVA) - The Fayette County 911 Center celebrated a milestone Tuesday.

The center was established 20 years ago.

The center has made numerous changes over the years, from using pen and paper to record all calls, to using analog communications, and then moving into a new paperless center this past summer.

"We have seen a lot of changes over the years," said Communications Director David Neal.  "The types of responses have definitely changed. Criminal actives are much different now -- For example drugs are more different than they were 20 years ago."

Neal says the calls never stop, and neither do emergencies.
