WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – The city of Warren and Trumbull County are continuing to explore the possibility of merging their 911 systems.
On Thursday, the Trumbull County 911 Planning Committee held a meeting. The committee manages the 911 system and is made up of commissioners, mayors and township trustees from throughout the county. Members unanimously passed two motions.
One will authorize Trumbull County 911 to take a look at adjusting its final plan to include the City of Warren. That is the potential merger that Warren City Council discussed at its meeting Wednesday.
The other allows the committee to spend money on software to make sure all the public safety answering points in the county are on a common network. Warren and Trumbull County are already compatible.
“We are connected with the city of Warren right now. We both have the same CAD system, records management system, etc.,” Trumbull County 911 Director Ernie Cook said.
Trumbull County has two primary public safety answering points, Warren and Trumbull County, and three secondary PSAPs, Lordstown, Niles and Girard.
