Regional 9-1-1 Program Celebrates 25 Years of Service

Passage of HB 911 in 1987 requested Texas' regional planning councils (COGs) to undertake 9-1-1 planning and implementation activities in behalf of their local governments. After two years of planning, coordinating system design, and general preparation, implementation of Enhanced 9-1-1 was completed in January 1992.

In total, thirteen countywide and five municipal systems, which include 43 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), were turned up during the period June 1991 through January 1992. These systems include:
