[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7r946astHA]KWTV-9 called us on March 9 to find out more about the region’s 9-1-1 system, and how it works with wireless, mobile phones. Reporter Kirsten McIntyre interviewed 9-1-1 Director Steve Willoughby about the progress of the system and how it has transitioned from landline phones to mobile.  The interview was prompted by News9 in response to a domestic disturbance in which a woman called 9-1-1 on her cellphone.  Unable to talk, as she was being assaulted by her ex-boyfriend, dispatchers in Midwest City were able to locate her through Phase 2 technology, which was implemented in Central Oklahoma in 2006.
