The Stark County Emergency Management Agency Director, Timothy Warstler, and the Stark County Auditor, Alan Harold's Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Department, created and installed an Emergency Service Number (ESN) layer on all 911 computer stations. Between sixty and seventy percent of 911 calls made are VOIP or wireless and therefore are not associated with an ESN. With the ESN layer, call-takers and dispatchers are able to quickly locate the boundaries of each service provider's jurisdiction and more efficiently, dispatch the correct police, fire, and medical services to the scene of an emergency. For instance, when four jurisdictions meet at the middle of an intersection, being able to visibly see those boundaries on the call-taker/dispatcher's monitor can decrease the amount of time it takes to route calls to the proper responders.
