BeaverCountian.com Resumes Publishing 911 Call Logs After Tech Glitches

BeaverCountian.com has resumed its regular publication of 911 call logs for every municipality in the county.

The records are updated daily, showing the previous day’s emergency calls for medics, fire rescue, and police. The public records, which are obtained by BeaverCountian.com from county government under provisions of the Pennsylvania Right to Know Law, include the nature of each call, a dispatch location, and response times.

The site has been publishing the 911 call logs since October 2019, but updates were paused earlier this month when a minor technical glitch with the county’s systems interrupted delivery of its records to BeaverCountian.com’s servers. After the county quickly rectified its issue, new systems implemented on BeaverCountian.com’s end were responsible for a longer delay in processing the records for public distribution.

The 911 logs are published on the site’s “community dashboards,” which also present news about each of the 53 different towns collated from social media by the site’s systems.

BeaverCountian.com monitors hundreds of public social media profiles on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram that provide information about communities in the county. The news presented to readers comes largely from pages operated by official sources, such as borough and township governments, police and fire departments, and school districts.

The Community Dashboards are prominently linked to in a dropdown menu on the front page of BeaverCountian.com.
