County 911 center holds rare open house

The Lackawanna County Emergency Communications Center in Jessup isn’t the sort of public building a citizen can just drop in to visit.

The post-Sept. 11 facility opened in 2007 and is partially surrounded by a high fence topped with barbed wire. It is separated from the road and parking lot by a creek, passable only by a pedestrian bridge.

Most of the year, the building is locked down with no one but on-duty employees permitted.

But Saturday, the building was open to the public for a rare open house on “Local Heroes and Family Day.” The goal, said center director Tom Dubas, is to show county residents the people behind emergency response.
