Beginning May 14, 2014, the Indiana Statewide 9-1-1 Board, working with Pike County Sheriff’s Office, announced that public safety has taken a major move forward. Through Indiana’s strong, coordinated approach to public safety, local 9-1-1 centers across the state are now providing the public with access to 9-1-1 through the use of text messaging from their wireless handset.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) wants all other wireless carriers to provide text-to-911 by the end of the year.
As you hear more about text messaging in the new few days, our agency is always available at (812) 354-6776 to answer questions or help those with individual needs. Additional information is also available at www.in911.net and www.textty.com
