Lake County Upgrading its 911 System

Lake County is cutting down on old-fashioned paperwork, so emergency crews can come to your rescue even faster. The county is going completely paperless with its new 911 system, which will help speed up their work. Soon, county workers will be able to access a database with the most up-to-date background information. The system will also prepare the workers on some situations they might be heading into. Dispatch workers say the new system should be up and running in September. Today they had a kickoff meeting in Baldwin to let workers know what to expect in this new transition. 9&10's Cali O'Rourke and photojournalist Jordan Nagel were at the meeting and have more details.
