WINSTON COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – A new Winston County Emergency 911 system is up and running.
Prior to the upgrade emergency operators were using a system that was about six years old and became obsolete last February.
The upgrade uses CAD, or computer aided dispatch, one of the most advanced systems in use today.
Dispatchers can easily perform their jobs with speed and accuracy when seconds count.
It will prioritize events and identify the appropriate resources needed to respond to each call.
