Jerry Riggs, standing beside the center's emergency generator, says "We really want to thank those folks who have been helping with the project."
Volunteerism has been the name of the game at Calhoun's new 911 center, particularly in recent weeks.
The new center is located behind Calhoun Middle-High School.
Jerry Riggs, 911 Advisory Board Director, has been using Donald Poe Gunn's backhoe with numerous projects related to site preparation.
Al Keesler and Dave Johnson textured the 911 room ceiling. The walls are just about ready to paint and the block walls have been buffed and are ready to prime.
The heating contractor is working on the heating system and Richard Kirby has been doing electrical work.
"Dave, Al, Al's son Jesse and Lisa worked on the drywall and the ceilings are done," reported Riggs.
The emergency generator has been delivered to the building.
"We really want to thank those folks who have been helping with the project," said Riggs.
