911 Center gets major grant
GENESEO — The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office has received a grant of $305,000 for upgrades to the Livingston County 911 Center.
The grant is through the state Division of Homeland Security.
The Livingston County 911 Center provides emergency call taking to all responders in Livingston County.
For 24 years, Livingston County has continued to upgrade its 911 system on an annual basis as equipment meets its life cycles and new technology evolves.
The agency works with the County Administrator and Board of Supervisors to continue these upgrades.
Sergeant Michael Bradley, 911 Coordinator, and County Planning Director Angela Ellis, along with the 911 Board of Livingston County have actively pursued grants available through New York State’s Homeland Security to meet these needs.
Livingston County has also applied for a $6 million grant for upgrades to fire, police and emergency communications equipment.
