Cowley County Emergency Communications officials said today that 911 callers may have to answer a few more questions than usual when a statewide upgrade is performed on the 911 system later this month.

From 10 p.m. Feb. 13 to 6 a.m. Feb. 14, AT&T will perform a statewide upgrade to enhance E-911 resiliency.

During that time, 911 calls will still be processed locally but communications personnel may have to ask a few more questions to verify location accuracy. Despite that, 911 officials said anyone having an emergency should not hesitate to dial 911.
