From Cowlitz County 9-1-1 Communications Center
The Cowlitz County 9-1-1 Center will be installing a new UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) on Monday, August 13, 2012 at 3:00 a.m. The installation is predicted to be completed on the same day, August 13, 2012 at 6:00 a.m.
During that time period, the 9-1-1 lines will be forwarded to Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA) and 9-1-1 dispatchers will be at the CRESA facility to handle the calls that come in.
"We anticipate a smooth transition. Please do not call 9-1-1 unless it is an emergency. Our business line will go unanswered during this time," relayed Cowlitz County 9-1-1 Director Laurie Masse. "Thank you for your cooperation during this transition."
