Recall Cam comes to an end, center prepares to shut down

Posted in

It turns out last Thursday (March 22) was the last day for the recall webcam.

Our partners at 5Nines.com, who provided the streaming video of operations at the Recall Processing Center for free, needed their server for an event on Friday. We were going to set it back up on Tuesday morning, but since operations will be winding down on Wednesday, it did not make sense to start everything back up again just to shut it down the next day. Today is the last day for temporary staff, and Wednesday will be the last day for G.A.B. staff.
