Legislation approved to make 911 response better

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Governor Terry Branstad has signed a new 911 law to improve the effectiveness and response time of 911 services.

The legislation provides more investment for area 911 dispatch centers, saving property taxpayers money, along with starting a study to generate ideas about how to modernize 911 in Iowa in the future.

Cedar Falls senator Jeff Danielson pushed for the legislation.  Danielson is also a firefighter.  

"Keeping our citizens safe now and in the future means keeping up with changing technology and ensuring a hassle free, seamless service with the wide variety of emergency responders," Danielson said.
