Deadline extended for 911 Survey!
DEADLINE EXTENDED - January 4, 2014 Please
SHARE/FORWARD this to YOUR MEMBERS
The CRTC proceeding (hearing) topic is exploring the
issues around Next-Generation 9-1-1 services in Canada. To read more
about this proceeding, you can click this link: CRTC TNC 2016-116
Our Committee developed a new survey to find out if
others are having the same issues as our Committee members and friends
in the Community and we will present the results to the CRTC
Questions included cover topics such as:
Did you know that you need to register for Text
with 911? (Yes or No)
What do you tend to use when you want to call
9-1-1 services? TTY? IP-Relay? Text with 9-1-1?
Are you still keeping your TTY "just in
case" of emergency for 9-1-1?
Do you find the Text with 9-1-1 registration
process clear or confusing?
Do you use relay services for 9-1-1
emergencies? Which ones? How often?
These questions are based also on questions that the
CRTC has asked our group, and our response will be stronger if we have
the numbers from survey statistics to show for our arguments/points to
them that the system NEEDS TO CHANGE.
