911 Dispatches Seek Help



911 dispatchers in Saline County will discuss a new emergency response system.
 
The system is called Next-Generation 911, and it handles emergency calls through text messages and social media and also divert calls to neighboring counties if the center is overwhelmed, like during the leap day tornadoes.
 
The Illinois Commerce Commission hasn’t given the go-ahead for the idea yet, and officials will discuss a plan the Commission will be fine with Thursday morning.
