Vt. schools better prepared for emergencies

Posted: Updated:
HYDE PARK, Vt. -

Vermont schools are better prepared for emergencies this fall thanks to upgrades in their phone systems.

The state discovered earlier this year that many school's phone systems showed a central location-- often miles away from the actual school. That would make it difficult for first responders to find the source of a 911 call.

School districts across the state spent the summer making sure there's a telephone in every classroom with the physical location correctly recorded in the E-911 database.
