The City of Pittsburg and Crawford County have partnered to purchase a new state-of-the-art emergency call handling and management system that will allow residents to text urgent alerts to 9-1-1.
The new 9-1-1 solution provides everything emergency dispatchers need to manage any emergency call from any device, at any time, from anywhere, and in any format. Call takers at the Pittsburg Police Department and Crawford County Sheriff’s Office will be able to answer text-to-911 calls like any other call, right from their desktops. They will also be able to pinpoint landline and mobile calls, offering a complete geo-location and mapping solution.
Equipment was purchased using state funds earmarked for public safety.
