Kennewick Hopes to Better Emergency Response Times

KENNEWICK, Wash - Kennewick firefighters are trying to find ways to respond to emergencies quicker.

One way is by shortening the tones that alert them about something they need to respond to.

These tones are a series of beeps and moans that signal which fire station is being called in to action.

Firefighters are also looking at things such as station design and in-truck mapping systems to make things quicker from the moment they hear those tones.
