WATERLOO (KWWL) - Black Hawk County dispatch wins a national 911 award.

Communications Center Director Judy Flores received the government leader award in Washington Wednesday.

This past year, Black Hawk County activated its new text message 911 system.

Flores was recognized for the instrumental role she played in helping to make Black Hawk County, Iowa the first in the nation to receive 9-1-1 text messages. She worked closely with a technical team through an aggressive, challenging deployment schedule to integrate this ground-breaking technology into her center's daily routine.
