Region views on 911 consolidation
Loreena Rivera, Lansing | "No. I don't think it would be good. There's too many people, so I don't think they could respond quickly enough."
Micah Menrath, Portage | "It might. Instead of relying on themselves they would be included with others."
Joseph Doman, Chesterton | "I'm not sure about unity, but it could have its benefits. If it saves money and makes the center more effective that would be good. We'll have to wait and see."
Helen Hameetman, Dyer | "I think it's too big of an area for one call center. I do believe it would bring the communities together."
Tiffany Mogan, Cedar Lake | "I think it's more complicated. I think it's OK the way it is now. I don't like the way they scrutinize your calls anyway."
Barbara Mably, Hobart | "No. Lake County is fighting about everything. The politicans couldn't find anything that would bring them together."
