911 Call Boxes Coming To South Haven Beaches



Call boxes will be installed this summer at both North and South Beach in South Haven. The 911 boxes are coming as the result of a settlement with the family of Martin Jordan, who drowned in 2009. City Manager Brian Dissette says a lot of the time, guests are trying to describe a location to a dispatcher based on landmarks they are seeing.

Listen:



The call boxes will be installed this summer and will cost the city just over $48,000 this year. Dissette says there is a good possibility if the new system works that it will be expanded. Video cameras will also be installed that will be linked directly to dispatchers when the phone is activated.
