9-1-1 Wireless

Nortex staff oversees the wireless telephone number identification technology implementation in our nine county region. Wireless vendors are required to schedule testing of each tower to ensure that 9-1-1 calls are routed to the correct and closest PSAP.

PHASE I WIRELESS (delivery of a wireless caller’s individual telephone number and the address of the tower transmitting the call) has been successfully implemented.

PHASE II WIRELESS (delivery of a more accurate location of the calling party along with the individual wireless telephone number) implementation has also been completed in the Nortex Region.

TEXT TO 9-1-1 services from mobile devices are implemented within our region for the hearing and speech impaired and for those calls that may not need to be voiced for personal security reasons.
