The new Trigg County Emergency Operations Center and the 9-1-1 Dispatch center are now fully functional in their new home at the old Trigg County Senior Citizens Center.

At a ribbon cutting held by the Cadiz-Trigg County Chamber of Commerce on Thursday afternoon, Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander said the new location gives both organizations ample space.

“Our 9-1-1 center, call center, has come a long way, from the old days,” Alexander said. “Some of us remember when we dispatched at the Byrd farm … and they moved to the basement of the courthouse, and it was in a small little room in the basement there that was very crowded to the basement of the Sheriff’s Office, which was an upgrade from where they were, but they had run out of room, and I think the Sheriff had run out of room.”

Alexander remembered when the former EOC building – located at the Rescue building on Canton Road – was used during the 2009 ice storm. He said it’s a good building but was rather crowded.
