RRRDC Receiving Enhanced Location Date for Mobile Caller via RapidSOS NG911 Clearinghouse

RRRDC always seeks to implement 9-1-1 technology tools that will improve emergency response for the responders and public we serve. 

The first and most important question in every 9-1-1 call is “What’s the location of your emergency?” Knowing the caller’s location is the first step to dispatching life-saving emergency responders.  Through the NG911 Clearinghouse, Red River Regional Dispatch is now able to receive fast and accurate caller location data during 9-1-1 calls placed from an iPhone with iOS 12 or from Android phones version 4.0 and up.

RRRDC is the first Public Safety Answering Point in North Dakota to implement this 9-1-1 technology to enhance public safety responses by obtaining faster and more accurate location information.
