BBT is proud to announce that we were selected for a regional project in conjunction with the Permian Basin Regional Planning Commission (PBRPC). It was recently determined that alternate routes were needed to ensure that the region’s residents would never be isolated from reliable 9-1-1 services. Previously if a network issue developed some residents might find themselves unable to reach emergency services quickly and reliably. Because of BBT’s wide ranging, diverse communication routes and our experience in providing equivalent services for the Rio Grande Council of Governments, we were chosen to set up these alternate routes for the 9-1-1 system. Once complete, this new system will ensure that our area residents will always have access to emergency services in the event of life-threatening situations.
Throughout the process we will be working with other telco partners to create this alternate network for citizens in the following counties: Gaines, Andrews, Martin, Crane, Upton, Pecos, Terrell, Reeves, Ward and Dawson. The project implementation will take several months to complete but we expect to have all equipment and circuits in place by late spring 2019.
BBT is honored that the Permian Basin Regional Planning Commission has entrusted us with such a vital project and will continue to work to provide area residents with the most current and reliable services available. We will always strive to make sure our friends and loved ones are safe and have access to emergency services. It’s just one more way that BBT is here for you!
Please feel free to contact our offices at 800.592.4781 to learn more about this regional project and other exciting services we have to offer.
