Eaton County, Michigan – which is home to approximately 110,000 people across the county’s 10 local communities – recently installed Cel-Fi GO RED at its central dispatch for emergency services. The central dispatch answers all 9-1-1 calls in the county, and handles dispatch for the county’s 14 fire departments, eight law enforcement agencies, and six emergency medical services agencies. In 2018, the County’s dispatch team fielded more than 94,000 calls for police, medical, and fire services.
The County’s dispatch center is located in the basement of a building (that was constructed to withstand a tornado) in a rural area with no cellular towers in close proximity. As a result, it lacked cellular service. This was quickly resolved by installing Cel-Fi GO RED.
