NORWALK — Thanks to a levy that was approved last year, Huron County residents are about to get a new and improved system for 9-1-1 calls. The new 9-1-1 system will be ready early next year, said Tacy Bond, 9-1-1 coordinator at Huron County’s Emergency Management Agency. It was paid for through a five-year, 0.7 mill levy approved by county voters in November 2019. The system is expected to go live in January, Bond said. The county had some problems that postponed the original launch date. “We had an issue with the network design that was installed by Frontier. It was provisioned wrong and we missed our first launch date due to that,” Bond said. “We are on schedule for the end of January as long as there are no other issues.”
