NENA: Lack of state funding delaying text-to-9-1-1

Public Safety SmartBrief | May 27, 2015

NENA CEO Brian Fontes says the main reason some call centers lack text-to-9-1-1 capability is that state leaders have not pushed through necessary funding measures. Fontes called on state legislators to provide the money call centers need to make the upgrades for 9-1-1 texts. He urged cooperation on the upgrades between wireless carriers and state authorities.
