Webster County, Mississippi Selects GeoComm Dispatch Map For New Dispatch Mapping Software
When there is an emergency, time is everything. That is why 9-1-1 centers are always working to improve emergency response times. Webster County, Mississippi was working to do just that when they installed GeoComm Dispatch Map.
Webster County, Mississippi, who had ben a GeoComm customer for over a decade, recently decided to upgrade to the latest version of GeoComm’s public safety dispatch mapping software. It brings together their mapping and geographic information system (GIS) data to provide a more accurate and faster emergency response. Exceptional user experience proveds them greater situational awareness and quick access to location information through searches and map tools.
Webster County joins a growing number of public safety agencies throughout the United States utilizing GeoComm Dispatch Map to meet the stringent and demanding requirements of mission critical emergency response GIS.
"There are a lot of mapping programs across Mississippi, but here in Webster County, we feel that GeoComm Dispatch Map is the best that you can get in Mississippi. Before GeoComm Dispatch Map, we would get basic information from 9-1-1 calls — the telephone number [and] close location of where the caller was located. With this software we will get an exact location of where 9-1-1 callers are, basically, within four or five feet of where the phone is."
