Commissioners discuss new GIS addressing system (Continued from IA) gency calls will be made from a cell phone within the next two years. The first step in becoming phase two, 91 I compliant is to readdress all rural residents according to National Emergency Number Association (NENA) standards. A computerized master street address then de- veloped matching the new addresses to a GIS map. Phone companies who route emergency information and coun- ties work together with the goal of 100 percent accuracy, so the location of all wire and wireless phone calls wi thin a county could be pinpointed on the dis- patcher map, ,which would then be used to direct emergency personnel. Tooze suggested if the counties work together, they would save dollars and simplify the process. Early esti- mates tbr the cost of developing the system for Nuckolls County were $40,000. It is expected to take at leasl one year to develop the system.
