Allentown, Northampton Co. agree on 911 partnership

New 911 partnership

A new partnership is designed to enhance 911 call coverage in the Lehigh Valley.

The City of Allentown is joining forces with Northampton County to enhance its 9-1-1 services.

Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski and Northampton County Executive John Brown announced the new partnership Wednesday morning.

In the case of a network outage, equipment failure or extremely high call volumes, the county will help the city by answering its 9-1-1 calls--and vice versa.

Officials hope to launch the new program by the end of the year.
