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.
