Guam - The Guam Fire Department's Emergency 911 Center personnel are still waiting for one last quick fix at its Agana Heights facility before moving back. E-911 officer in charge Lieutenant Phil Camacho says the air handler is fixed and things are much cooler in the lobby and 911 Center, GFD is now waiting for the vendor to clean out the air vents. GFD has spent the past couple months at its redundant station in Dededo after the air conditioning system went out. The issue only brings to light the need for 911 to have its own facility.

He said, "We've always been transitional to where available and so the chief wants to have a permanent home and 911 Center and use this facility as a redundant back up and then Dededo will be the tertiary in the event its needed."

He says a new 911 center is still in the discussion phase. In the meantime, its unknown when the vents will be cleaned out so 911 staff can move back.
