RE:  Text to 9-1-1 Service Launches in (Missaukee) County

 

Missaukee County Sheriff’s Office 911 Dispatch and Peninsula Fiber Network, LLC (PFN) announces that Missaukee County Sheriff’s 911 Dispatch now support emergency text messages from wireless devices to 9-1-1. Effective immediately, individuals anywhere in Missaukee County can send a text message to 9-1-1 in an emergency.

 

“We are pleased that we are able to launch this service in  Missaukee County,” said Sheriff Yancer, “Calling and speaking with a dispatcher is still the best way of reaching emergency services but that is not always an option.”

 

Texting to 9-1-1 is a critical service that will benefit anyone who is not able to speak due to an emergency such as a home invasion or an abusive partner. It is also intended to help individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability. It can also be a benefit in areas where wireless service is limited.

 

“Please remember to Call when you can; Text when you can’t”, said Edward Nettle, 911-Coordinator. There are a few important tips to remember when texting to 9-1-1. Send brief messages without using abbreviations or slang. Be prepared to communicate your exact location and the emergency help that is needed. Stay with your wireless device and be prepared to answer questions and follow instructions from the 9-1-1 dispatcher.

 

Missaukee County has been working with Peninsula Fiber Network, LLC (PFN) to bring Next Generation 911 services to Missaukee County. “We have worked closely with the Missaukee County Sheriff’s Office 911 Dispatch to implement a system that is capable of supporting new technologies such as texting to 911” said Dave McCartney, General Manager of Peninsula Fiber Network, LLC (PFN). “The 911 network is designed to be fully redundant, resilient and survivable as defined by the latest FCC guidelines.”
