$3.6 million in E-911 grants awarded to Kan. agencies


By The Salina Journal

SALINA, Kan. — More than $3.6 million in grants has been awarded to 47 agencies to help them implement changes in emergency dispatch systems that will assist cell phone and voice-over-Internet protocol users in calling 911 in emergency situations.

The money comes from a 25-cent monthly fee collected from wireless service accounts in Kansas and a 1 percent fee on the retail price of prepaid wireless service. Counties with populations of fewer than 75,000 and cities within those counties are eligible for grants.
