Sedgwick County makes upgrades to text-to-911 system
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Sedgwick County upgraded its text-to-911 system.
911 dispatchers are now able to start text conversations.
They can also receive texts in any language with an automatic translator and use the what3words app to pinpoint a caller’s location.
Prior to the upgrades, dispatchers could receive texts but could not start the conversation.
The county says users will see a 10-digit number that is unique to Sedgwick County 911.
