Manteo, NC, USA, Apr 4, 2017 -- One emergency call center will serve three coastal North Carolina counties in an agreement that officials say is a precedent they believe will spread across the state.
The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, Virginia, reports officials from Dare, Hyde and Tyrrell counties cut the ribbon Monday on the call center in Manteo.
The center will house 911 communications apparatus for the three counties. It also provides an emergency operations center for Dare County where first-responders and storm-damage assessors can live during a hurricane.
The building can withstand winds of up to 150 mph.
Hyde County manager Bill Rich says the agreement among the three counties for a 911 center is the first in the state. He says he believes other counties will have to consolidate 911 centers eventually.
