How would you like to get spot-on emergency call location the first time, every time, even to individual units in crowded apartment complexes, office buildings and mobile home parks? It can be done. More than two-thirds of Ohio’s 88 counties are doing it now.
The key is to use field-verified data collection – a process pioneered by DDTi and embraced by the State of Ohio in an ongoing initiative called Ohio’s Location Based Response System (LBRS). Ohio’s LBRS data is so accurate that it has been lauded by the U.S. Department of Transportation as a “best practice” in its 2011 Transportation for the Nation strategic plan. It has also put Ohio in a position to be well ahead of the pack in complying with Next Generation 9-1-1 efforts.
“There are a lot of mapping systems out there that will guess what an address is instead of field verifying it,” says Kim Hambel, Communications Supervisor for the Muskingum County, Ohio, Sheriff’s Office. “When a life is on the line, I don’t want to guess. I want an accurate location of where that address is at.”
There’s no better way to ensure the safety of lives and property where you work and live than by trusting DDTi to increase the reliability and uniformity of your map data.
