CAPCOG launches Text to 9-1-1 region wide
“Call if You Can, Text if You Can’t.”
The Capital Area Council of Governments has deployed Text to 9-1-1 service region wide after successfully testing that the region’s 31 public safety answering points (PSAPs), or 9-1-1 call centers, can reliably receive and respond to SMS text messages.
This September, in observance of National Preparedness Month, we are asking all employees to take an active step toward contributing to a disaster ready regional community. Please sign up to get emergency and evacuation alerts in your neighborhood, directly from your local first responders, by phone, text or email. Simply sign up at WarnCentralTexas.org.
