Emergency call centers are overwhelmed.

Unprecedented staffing shortages and overwhelming call volumes are leading to longer and longer wait times. Complicating this, more than 60% of the 240 million calls made to 911 do not qualify as emergencies but 911 call center agents must still answer, listen, and triage every call in order to route them correctly. This results in overwhelmed operators, diverted resources, and citizens waiting an average of 3 minutes on hold for help.


According to the FCC, emergency the average 911 call center only meet emergency call answer standards 58% of the time.

How it works

  1. An operator answers a 911 call and assesses if the call is an emergency. If the call does not require emergency dispatch, the operator offers the caller the help of the non-emergency bot. The bot greets the caller and explains that it is an automated assistant created to handle non-emergency questions and requests.

  2. The AWS 911 Non-Emergency Virtual Citizen Assistant helps the caller find the information they need. This can include transferring the call to a different department, texting the caller a link to resources, providing documents, scheduling an appointment, collecting feedback, or providing information on events, emergency procedures, contact information, project status updates, and much more.

  3. The bot ensures that the caller has all information they need before ending the call and sends a transcript of the call to the 911 center’s records system.

At any point during the call, the caller can opt to return to a live 911 agent. If the situation escalates or if the operator who answered has concerns about the call, the bot can immediately conference in the original 911 operator for triage.
