Call if you can, Text if you can’t! 9-1-1 is in the news with FCC requirements to implement text to 9-1-1. 9-1-1 Trainer.com, a company of 9-1-1 educators, along with Adacel Corporation, a leading developer of advanced simulation and control systems for aviation and defense, announce the release of 9-1-1 Reality PLUS Training Simulator.
This wireless computer training station is a call taking and radio dispatch simulator loaded with a full 9-1-1 Classroom Academy.

With zero footprint the ThinkCentre offers space saving portability for education classroom labs and 9-1-1 agencies where space is a premium.
Although 9-1-1Trainer.com has created training products and simulators for 25 years, the FCC requirement for 9-1-1 to accept text messages prompted quick action by this team of 9-1-1 professionals to meet the challenges texting will bring the Comm Centers. 9-1-1 Reality Plus creative team combines expert knowledge of the 9-1-1 industry, practical experience of 9-1-1 educator and the technical expertise of a leading simulation developer.
