Text-to-9-1-1 is coming to reality as more and more PSAPs take on this new Public Safety responsibility

At Airbus DS Communications, we are proud to support the Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) communications needs of Brazos Valley Council of Governments (BVCOG), Texas, which was the first beta site for our VESTA® SMS solution and the first public safety agency in the nation to deliver a native text-to-9-1-1 message through call processing equipment (not a third-party texting or messaging application)!

We recently captured the thoughts of Anita Pitt, 9-1-1 Program Manager at BVCOG, on video highlighting her team’s experience in implementing text-to-9-1-1. Watch it to:
