A new program will help Allen County Emergency Communications receive fast and accurate device location data for 911 emergency calls from mobile devices.
The first and most important question in every 911 call is Whats the location of your emergency? Knowing the callers location is the first step to dispatching live-saving emergency responders.
Using new technology through the RapidSOS NG911 Clearinghouse, data from millions of devices is integrated into Allen Countys existing 911 call-taking software. The system provides information seamlessly to call-takers and dispatchers as they work to send appropriate help quickly.
Stay connected to the stories and events that make your community a special place to call home.
