It's every parent's nightmare - having a child go missing, but a new smartphone app aims to give parents every chance to give that scenario a happy ending. Jim Howell comes by the studio to talk with Katie Solove about the 911 SafeChild app, and tell her how it works.
After its response time to a weekend barn fire came under critique, Lexington has announced its E911 service will hire more phone operators. The new staff members will handle non-emergency calls. According to the city, those calls make up about 53% of calls to the E911 Center. The hope is specifically tasking people with answering those calls should keep 911 operators free to answer emergencies. It is something Mercury Equine Center owner Eric Reed says comes too late for him.
