The Smart911 service was introduced to area officials Monday at the Barren River Area Development District board meeting. The system, in agreements with all major carriers, can track cell phone calls of all registered users made within the areas serviced by Smart911.
“It’s estimated that at least 70 percent of 911 calls come from cell phones,” Reiter said. “With our system all we have to do is press a button ... and we can get accurate addresses where the cell phone is.”
