Getting West Virginia's enhanced 911 system operational has been a challenge.|
Dave Johnson, Calhoun's 911 Director and addressing coordinator says the first phase of Calhoun's addressing has been completed and sent to the state.
"This phase is the naming of all county roads," he said. "They are all named now, even the smallest roads with a couple houses."
Johnson said that doesn't mean road names can't be changed in the future. "There is a process to get that done," he said.
He says phase two of the addressing process will commence in a few months, when 911 addressing workers will be coming to the county to complete the numbering of property.
He says before the on-site work is done, residents will receive fliers in the mail, including addressing cards and house numbers to temporarily place in windows.
"We will keep the public posted with each new step," he said.
