"Many of our members have a growing need for enhanced 911 services," according to Tim von Hoff, Chief Operating Officer of MiCTA. "Our education members must respond to a growing number of state and local regulations regarding the provision of enhanced 911 services, especially as they apply to multi-line telephone services and residential buildings on campus. Many of our municipal members are also looking for ways to improve their ability to respond to incoming emergency assistance calls from a variety of technologically advanced communications devices."
"Our members turn to us for assistance with managing technology demands," says von Hoff. "We have been monitoring the growth in E911 regulations that affect our membership and have been working with our members to help them comply with changes in both legislation and communications technologies."
