Lafayette Parish Deploys Carbyne’s 9-1-1 Technology
Tuesday, May 07, 2019 | Comments

Lafayette Parish in Louisiana selected Carbyne to implement its next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) technology into the parish’s emergency services systems to improve visibility on the scene and emergency response for citizens. This implementation is the first of its kind in Louisiana and continues the parish’s 9-1-1 digitization efforts.

The plug-in enables Lafayette Parish telecommunicators to receive device-based location for 9-1-1 and nonemergency calls, receive call-taker enabled video streams from callers, and instant message with citizens in situations where verbal communications may be untenable.

“Lafayette Parish 911 is leveraging advanced 9-1-1 technologies such as Mark43 and Carbyne, to make citizens and first responders safer,” said Craig Stansbury, 9-1-1 director of Lafayette Parish. “Both solutions are built for the digital age, providing benefit to our 9-1-1 center today and in the future. Implementing Carbyne’s technology provides our citizens with easily accessible, next-generation emergency services — ultimately decreasing time to dispatch and saving more lives.”
