Hubbard County's E-911 system is a step above a tin can telephone.

It's a 10-year-old computer running Windows 95.

In computer terms, it's on life support.


Wednesday the Hubbard County Board of Commissioners voted to spend nearly $132,000 to overhaul the system.

"At some point soon they will not be supplying parts to fix it," said E-911 administrator Sherri Klasen.
