  • Publication number: 20220191671
    Abstract: An emergency system for sending outbound messages to emergency callers receives data signals related to emergency calls that have been answered at a public safety answering point (PSAP) and data signals related to emergency calls that have not been answered. A user of the emergency system can select a geographic area, e.g., an area with a high volume of unanswered calls, and configure a message to be sent to the phone numbers associated with unanswered emergency calls within the geographic area.

  • Publication number: 20220007165
    Abstract: A system for providing locations of emergency callers receives call data related to emergency calls received at a public safety answering point (PSAP) and a supplemental data signal that includes a location of an emergency. A signal correlation engine determines whether the supplemental data signal corresponds to one of the emergency calls received at the PSAP. A web server provides a user interface that includes a map and a supplemental signal indicator corresponding to the supplemental data signal. The supplemental signal indicator is positioned on the map at the location of the emergency, and the supplemental signal indicator has a visual characteristic indicating whether or not the supplemental data signal corresponds to an emergency call received at the PSAP.
