Second call center approved

By  | 

FANNIN COUNTY, TEX. -- Hoping to increase emergency response times, the Bonham City Council has approved a second public safety answering point.

The council unanimously approved the resolution Monday night, establishing the second emergency call center.

All county 911 calls will now go directly to the sheriff's office.

City 911 calls will continue to be routed to the Bonham Police Department.

The change will be funded through a Texoma Council of Governments and 911 Division grant.
