Text to 9-1-1 Technology Coming to FDL County
9-1-1 technology will be coming to
early next year.
Emergency Management Director Bobbi Hicken says they have the funding for the
technology, but AT&T and the provider for the service weren’t able to do it
this year because of the hurricanes that hit part of the U.S.. The service for the system will go live in
mid-January. It will enable someone to text to 9-1-1 if they are unable to
speak or are at risk of harm if they do. Hicken says they are excited about
being able to offer the service to county residents.
