Thief River Falls, MN, August 24, 2019 – Pennington County is partnering with Carbyne, a global leader in 911 technology, to take the first steps towards Next Generation 911 call-management. Pennington is the first county in Minnesota to use Carbyne’s life-saving technology. The unique digital platform will enhance Pennington’s emergency services by providing dispatchers with video capabilities and the ability to pinpoint callers’ exact location, all in order to improve emergency response for citizens

“Carbyne’s technology is improving efficiency and success rates for 911 in Pennington County by enabling dispatchers to better understand and prioritize callers’ needs,” said Pennington County Sheriff Ray Kuznia. “With Carbyne’s advanced technology, we are providing our citizens with more efficient, more effective emergency services – helping our emergency response teams save more lives.” 

Pennington County 911 has chosen to use Carbyne’s c-Lite technology, providing dispatchers with the ability to: 

  • Receive live video streaming from caller phones in emergency situations 
  • Silently instant message with citizens who are unable to communicate verbally 
  • Receive callers’ precise location from their smartphone 

Carbyne’s non-disruptive c-Lite plug-in supplements Pennington’s legacy 911 platform and is easy for both call-takers citizens in distress to utilize. 

“Carbyne’s technology has already made a difference in emergency response systems all over the U.S.,” said Amir Elichai, CEO and Founder of Carbyne. “We are proud to help Pennington County increase the wellbeing and safety of its citizens.”
