Hennepin is the backup dispatch for Minnetonka. I recall when Minnetonka was switching over to Narrowband for paging they were told to switch there pagers to Hennepin main for paging for part of 1 day. Sounds like they can go to Hennepin main for a tower failure and Hennepin PSAP can dispatch them if there is a PSAP failure at Minnetonka.

That, my friends, is great fault tolerance/disaster recovery. Somebody was thinking ahead of the times.
