This technology is being used by other agencies in the Metro Atlanta area as well.

Key Points:

Kennesaw Acworth 911 is utilizing a new technology called ‘What3words’ to enhance emergency call response. The app allows callers to provide their location using three simple words rather than traditional landmarks or street addresses. Each square on the globe has been labeled with three unique words, which, when provided by the caller, can pinpoint their exact location for the dispatcher and first responders.

Officer David Buchanan from Kennesaw Police states that this technology will be particularly useful in scenarios where the caller is unable to provide a clear address or is in a secluded and unfamiliar location, such as the woods. The use of three words simplifies the process and enables first responders to reach the caller more quickly and efficiently.

This new technology has already shown promising results in improving emergency response in Kennesaw Acworth. Other Metro Atlanta agencies, including those in Gwinnett County, have also adopted this technology to enhance their emergency call systems.
