(ANGOLA) - The Steuben County Communications Department announced on Friday that it has upgraded the county’s 911 system in partnership with Frontier Communications. According to a news release issued by the Communications Department, the new Solacom 911 system platform provides next generation services such as texting, video and third party supplemental data such as Onstar when it's available. The news release went on to say that an outdated system was being replaced that officials say was out of warranty and had limited or unavailable replacement parts. In addition, county employees answering calls can now use both 911 and administrative lines with the same system.
