Dorchester County has updated its 911 emergency services equipment.

Officials say it will double the capacity for responding to calls.

WBOC reports the improvements range from a new location within the existing building and new computers to a better communication system.

Still the staffers said there are many ways to improve response.

Completion of the project is expected to take place within six months.
