The Hamilton County 911 Emergency Communications District has launched a new feature on its web page showing active calls for the public safety agencies served by the district.
In cooperation with its client agencies, the 911 District now provides real-time call information for incidents within our service area. This new feature is available on its web page (www.hc911.org) under the heading “Active Calls”.
The active call screen allows the viewer to select police, fire, or EMS calls as well as providing the ability to narrow down the selection to specific agencies within those disciplines. There is also a view for traffic-related calls which shows incidents that may affect travelers. Viewers will see the date and time the incident was created, the current status of responders, the type of call and the location both by street and map view.
Officials hopes this new feature will provide the community and media with improved situational awareness for incidents in their community and countywide.
The 911 District encourages everyone to visit the website and check out the new feature and while there, take the time to like on Facebook and follow on Twitter.
The Hamilton County 911 Emergency Communications District employs more than 130 telecommunicators who answer an approximate average of 2,000 to 2,500 calls for service each day from residents and visitors in Hamilton County.
