It can be possible.
Agencies will need a minimum of 10 radios before getting a private dispatch channel. If you have less than 10 radios then you will be put on a shared dispatch channel with other small agencies. All agencies will be required to conduct themselves professionally, but especially on these shared dispatch channels.
As Echo911 is a critical communications provider, our dispatch leadership team reserves the right to deny, suspend, or revoke service to anyone conducting themselves in an unprofessional manner.
The 10 radio standard will not impact clients already using our service prior to January 1st, 2023.
Currently we operate in Huntsville, Alabama in a secure, private concrete structure. Echo911's primary facility operates on fiber internet with cellular redundancy. The building has uninterrupted power supply with battery and generator backups. To facilitate growth and as a backup measure, Echo911 has an offsite dispatch center 100 miles away that can be activated quickly should a natural or manmade disaster occur.
Most clients are billed on a monthly basis, however Echo911 is willing to work with clients on a billing solution that works best for both parties. Typically payments are due the 1st of the month unless prior arrangements have been made.
If service initiates before the 16th of the month, you will not be charged for a full month of service. This will cause your first bill to be lower than normal.
If services initiates after the 16th of the month, you will owe for the rest of the month and the first full month. This will cause your bill to be higher than normal temporarily.
Echo911 is no longer offering payment plans. However, select circumstances may apply. Please speak with an Echo911 rep if interested.
As an alternative, Echo911 does now offer a rental program. Please contact sales to see what we can do for you!
