PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Workers at Allegheny County’s 911 center are being relocated while their building is being treated for bed bugs.
The insects were first found at the facility in Point Breeze last week.
On Tuesday, employees will be shifted to one of four alternate work locations.
Those locations include the facility on Railroad Street, 400 North Lexington, and other mobile command posts, which county officials say have state-of-the-art technology.
In a press release, Allegheny County Emergency Services Chief Alvin Henderson said, “Our entire mission is to support our citizens and first responders for the safety and sustainability of our community. I am proud that we are continuing to meet that mission, while also taking the appropriate action steps at the Lexington Center. This transition and operation allows us an opportunity to implement our back-up plan in a non-emergency situation to evaluate its effectiveness, as well as that of our personnel, and identify any areas for improvement.”
Emergency officials say 100 percent of operations will continue and there won’t be any disruptions in service.
Officials say they hope to resume operations in the Lexington 911 Center by 2:30 p.m. on Friday.
