Additionally, we can provide aid to callers in over 175 languages which can prove invaluable. Even for callers who speak English as a second language, the ability to receive aid in their native language, particularly in a time of duress, further puts the caller at ease and helps to ensure they are receiving proper assistance.
The systems used in the EDC enable automatic identification of the correct Responding Authority, Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), based on the location of the user. This is no small feat with more than 6,000 PSAPs across the U.S. In addition to having a highly trained staff, the dispatch center uses sophisticated hardware and automation software to digitally record, date and time stamp each call which may be replayed on request and emailed as .WAV files for company records or to be submitted as evidence in a dispute.
