Counties Update 911 System

Posted: Updated:

Soon you'll be able to text 911 during an emergency in addition to calling.

North Dakota counties are beginning the transition of the telephone-based 911 network into a digital next generation 911 system.

It will allow cell phone users to send text messages to dispatchers.

Callers will even be able to transmit other digital data such as photos and video to help dispatchers get a better understanding of an emergency.

This new system will also benefit deaf and hearing impaired people.
