911 Center: News

Outbound Notification Project

Missoula County is in the process of purchasing and installing an outbound notification system. This product will allow the 9-1-1 Center to notify citizens of emergencies happening in their area, by calling designated telephone numbers and leaving a prerecorded message with the information citizens need. Our hope is to have this new tool available to the 9-1-1 Center before the end of summer. Check back for here for updates and links to additional information on this new enhancement.

Missoula County nears completion of Phase Two Deployment

Missoula County recently completed a year long enhancement to provide the citizens of Missoula County with Phase Two Wireless E911. This new service allows Missoula County 9-1-1 Dispatchers to obtain the Latitude and Longitude of cell phone callers. This new service allows dispatchers with the press of a few buttons to obtain critical location information on most cell phone callers. Getting a good location for an incident is a critical piece of the dispatch puzzle, and this new technology has all ready been used to locate citizens involved in automobile accidents, who were unsure of their location and suspects in crimes.

There are Three Phases of cell phone calls:

There are limitations to this system:

Many of the other carriers, like AT&T, Sprint etc use the Verizon or Alltel towers, which allow them to provide phase 2 service. If you have questions about this or any of the services Missoula County 9-1-1 can provide, feel free to contact us.
