SAFETY SERVICES TECHNOLOGY AND
COMMUNICATIONS IMPROVING EMERGENCY
RESPONSE

No other connection is more essential than the one that can save a life. At West, we deliver technology solutions and services that provide the critical link between the public and public safety.

While nearly everyone outside of the public safety sphere takes 9-1-1 for granted, we never will. After all, we’re all consumers as well as suppliers of this most critical of services. We see your subscribers, employees and end users as you see them. As ordinary citizens, just like us, who might one day find themselves in need of emergency assistance from the experts—the first responders—who can help.

Everything that happens after a 9-1-1 call is placed–the call routing and delivery, location determination, data management and situational data–that’s us. It’s essential that we execute flawlessly because every call must get through and seconds save lives. For us, it’s personal.

The committed, passionate professionals who make up the West Safety Services team spend every day anticipating, developing, maintaining and improving 9-1-1 and emergency communications. While we appreciate the evolving ideas and technology innovations that make our lives more convenient, we focus on the ones that make us all safer.

No technology will ever completely eradicate the need for 9-1-1 and emergency assistance. But working together, we can dramatically improve the odds and outcomes for all of us.

Kari’s Law now the Law of the Land

West commends Congress for the recent passage of H.R. 582, commonly known as “Kari’s Law Act of 2017.”  The new law, which amends the Communications Act of 1934, is named in honor of Kari Hunt Dunn whose tragic passing in 2013 alerted the nation to the dangers of requiring a dialing prefix to access 911. Thanks to the tireless advocacy of 911 champions like Hank Hunt, Kari’s father, Americans across the land will benefit from easier access to 911 when connecting to the service from certain private phone systems.
