911 problem fixed at county dispatch center

Email

Dakota County's emergency response system is back at full strength.

On March 25 technicians installed a temporary fix for a software defect that caused a small number of 911 calls to roll into a queue meant for hang-ups and other failed calls. They had a permanent solution installed two days later.

Kent Therkelsen, executive director of the Dakota Communication Center, said dispatchers haven't noticed any problems since the temporary fix was installed.
