PG County received all of this funding. Did you know....
1)Prince Georges County does not have an enhanced 911 back up center. It is the only county in the region without this ability. If the primary center crashes, there is no way for the county to find out where an incident occurs. Their only back up is single line phones and hand held radios.
2)The current communications contract that covers the 911 center is about to expire and the county has refused to renew it.
3)A contact fro a new 911 has been signed but the new location will not be ready for at least a year.
4)The current 911 center has mold issues causing many of the call takers to become sick with resperatory illnesses.
