About the Program
9-1-1 Emergency Communications Program is funded by a local service fee and provides fully enhanced 9-1-1 services for the nine-county ATCOG region, including Texarkana, Arkansas. The 9-1-1 Program provides and maintains the necessary network and equipment to ensure delivery of 9-1-1 calls to the proper answering point. Public education materials are provided to residents of the region, including book covers to all schools. The program also provides dispatcher training.
Rural Addressing, also funded by the 9-1-1 Program, is on-going throughout the region to facilitate the provision of 9-1-1 services. With the completion of addressing for all existing rural residences, all new rural addresses for the region are assigned by the Ark-Tex Council of Governments (ATCOG) staff to maintain the regional database.
