In Iberia Parish, the 911 dispatch center will soon have a way to increase emergency response.
Parish leaders hired "Geo Comm," a company that upgrades 9-1-1 dispatch maps using a gps unit.
Parish officials say the maps they're using now for emergencies are old and somewhat inaccurate when finding exactly where an accident happened.
With the map upgrade, emergency crews will be able to pinpoint exactly where help is needed.
