It’s Time to Invest in NextGen 911!
When you dial 911 in Wisconsin, someone picks up this most urgent of calls and assists in emergency situations. However, the technology used in current 911 systems statewide is lagging behind and is outdated, mainly in the areas of text, photos and video submissions. These tools can aid law enforcement, paramedics and fire departments in reaching those in need quickly and accurately. Please take a moment to learn more and contact your legislators to tell them it’s time to invest in 911 for ALL of Wisconsin.
