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.
