Construction begins on Tri-County E-911 Center

March 23, 2004

Clinch County - Emergency care is stepping up a notch in three South Georgia counties.

Tuesday, emergency responders broke ground on a new tri-county Enhanced 9-1-1 center. The facility will be built on Highway 168 in Clinch County, and will serve citizens of Clinch, Atkinson, and Lanier.

"From a financial standpoint, none of the counties could have afforded it and coming together has allowed us to provide our citizens with this service," said Mark Steedley, Tri-County E-911 Chairman.

The land for the center was donated by Clinch county residents Lloyd and Pat Lee.

The center should be fully operational for all three counties in one year.
