E-911 consultant to call county residents

Express Staff Writer

As part of the process leading to implementation of emergency 911 services in Blaine County, database technicians will soon begin calling county residents to corroborate or clarify telephone numbers and addresses.

Technicians, working for a county consultant called GeoComm Inc., may be calling between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, according to a press release from the Blaine County Commission.

"The technician will identify himself or herself as working with Blaine County on the new E-911 system," according to the press release. "Information provided to GeoComm will be considered confidential and its distribution restricted to only those parties involved in the E-911 process."

The database of county addresses and telephone numbers is scheduled to be completed by the end of June, said Blaine County Sheriff Walt Femling, who is also a member of the Blaine County Communication Center Board.

"This is a final step in getting our addressing correct so we can move forward with E-911," Femling said.

GeoComís work is funded by a $1-per-month tax on telephone lines that was approved by county voters in November 2002 for the express purpose of establishing an E-911 system.
