Emergency Communications

Strengthening regional 9-1-1 systems to keep Texans safe.

Regional councils work with local and state officials to plan and coordinate emergency 9-1-1 communications throughout the majority of Texas, which is a nationwide leader in implementing the next generation of 9-1-1 services.

Working with the Commission on State Emergency Communications, regional councils in Texas have fully deployed advanced 9-1-1 services for wireless callers. Many regional councils with 9-1-1 responsibilities have also developed sophisticated data and mapping programs, which has allowed for the deployment of more advanced regional and local emergency notification systems.
