“This page is a digitally archived AccessInfo Announcement”

On February 4, 2015, the FCC announced the availability of a database registry listing 911 Call Centers, also known as Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), that are ready to receive text-to-911 messages.  This registry, called the Text-to-911 Registry, is also available to provide notice to wireless telecommunications service providers and text messaging service providers of when the PSAP is ready to receive text-to-911 messages.

The Text-to-911 Registry lists each PSAP that is identifiable by ID #, name, the county of operation, the primary point of contact for coordinating text-to-911 service and other information.  The Text- to-911 Registry is available at http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/psap-text-911-readiness-and-certification.
