24-hour Technical Troubleshooting
Your Emergency Services Division staff are on call 24-hours a day to assist local public safety dispatch centers with the troubleshooting of 9-1-1 and 800MHz radio communications problems. Here's one example of an after hours call out for a 9-1-1 telephone system failure. When a contractor carelessly back hoed into a 9-1-1 trunk cable between Manchester Village and the Ann Arbor main office, he temporarily disabled the 9-1-1 telephone service in the entire community. Emergency Services Division staff assisted with locating the break, provided for backup 9-1-1 service, and kept the public informed through local radio broadcasts. Ameritech crews worked through the night to restore service, which was fully repaired by morning. The moral of the story is: If you are going to dig, CALL MISS DIG at (800) 482-7171!

Master Street Address Guide (MSAG)
The MSAG is created and maintained from information provided by the PSAP Coordinators. This information must agree with telephone company customer records, and service order systems. The MSAG files contain street names, address ranges, community names, telephone exchange, and ESN's, (Emergency Service Numbers) for each jurisdictional area within the County. This data base is used to cross-reference an incoming E9-1-1 call and provide dispatchers with the correct response information for Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services. Your Emergency Management Division staff is involved daily with updating the database for accuracy and correcting reported errors.
