First responders in Bullitt County have a new tool to save lives.

When it comes to an active shooter situation, seconds matter. That's where the active shooter response system comes into play. And on Tuesday, the technology was installed at the Bullitt County Sheriff's Office's 911 dispatch center.

Hard-mounted buttons will be installed at local businesses. If there is an emergency, the system can send a signal directly to dispatchers with the address and map of the location.

This is the first ASR terminal in Kentucky.

According to the sheriff's office, the terminal was installed at no cost to the county.

"We are constantly working to ensure the most efficient and effective response to any threat our county may encounter. This ASR Terminal will help us respond more quickly," Sheriff Walt Sholar said.
