"CTIA and its member companies have long been committed to, and have a strong record of, enhancing public safety and ensuring that wireless consumers can reach 911 in their greatest time of need. Last week's voluntary commitment by the nation's largest wireless providers and leading public safety organizations to deliver text-to-911 communications to requesting public safety answering points accelerates the goal of bridging a diverse and innovative wireless communications system used every day by millions of Americans, including individuals with disabilities, with our nation's emergency communications system.
"While significant limitations and challenges exist in the broader delivery of text-to-911 communications, CTIA welcomes today's Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that asks important technical and operational questions regarding the use of these services to reach public safety answering points. We look forward to continuing to work with all stakeholders, including public safety, individuals with disabilities and the Commission, to address and resolve these outstanding questions."
