Show 24 Equal Access to 911 for Persons with Disabilities: Proposed Regulations

Right now, most 911 call centers are not equipped to accept emergency calls from text or video calls that many people with disabilities use to communicate. A new system called Next Generation 911 (NG911) will allow people to contact 911 through text or video calls. As a result, the Department of Justice is looking at revising the ADA regulations to ensure call centers are accessible. They're asking for comments from the public on this issue.
