Today Ten43 Technologies is launching 911.ms, a web site that allows the public to instant message and send their location to participating 9-1-1 centers (also known as PSAPs) for emergency assistance. This can be particularly important for users in emergency situations where they are not able to speak or speaking is not ideal, or for the hearing or speech impaired. Designed to support desktops, feature phones, smart phones, and tablets means that most anyone has the ability to silently contact 9-1-1. For those situations where the person in need might be in a moving vehicle, 9-1-1 has the ability to obtain location updates. Augmenting 911.ms is our Advanced 911 app, which adds support for the transfer of photos, medical details, and your emergency contacts.
