LOCK HAVEN — Clinton County is in the process of moving into its brand new 911 center.

On Wednesday, equipment will be moved from the current building in Lock Haven to the new one about two miles away.

The county’s EMA director says the biggest challenge will be making sure no calls are missed, but he’s confident the transition will go smoothly..

“To move a 911 center and not lose a 911 call or radio traffic will be quite a challenge, but we’ve planned this for about six months now,” said Director of Emergency Services Kevin Fanning.

Officials say the new $2.5 million 911 facility is three times the size of the old one and was paid for with Marcellus shale money and a bond.

The building will also house Clinton County’s veterans’ affairs office.
