CAPCOG approves Text-to-9-1-1 with October deadline

Thursday, April 14, 2016

CAPCOG’s Capital Area Emergency Communications District board approved the deployment of Text-to-9-1-1 for the 10-county region in its meeting this week; the action triggers notice to the wireless carriers who then have six months to provide the service.

Often the service is made available sooner than six months, according to Gregg Obuch, CAPCOG Emergency Communications Director, but it must be working by October.

Watch for the launch of the Text-to-9-1-1 educational campaign in  late summer.
