The Echo SatCom SatMAX system is a critical component of our disaster communications plan and is ready if any or all other means of terrestrial communications are compromised
Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 19, 2008
Officials with Echo Satellite Communications, Inc. (Symbol: OTCBB: ECSC), a leading global provider of wireless, non-line-of-sight satellite communications products and services, today announced that Fort Bend County, Texas, one of the fastest growing counties in the country, has renewed its satellite communications system contract.
The County owns an Echo SatCom portable SatMAX® Emergency Communications System. This capability helps to ensure constant satellite telephone communication for disaster recovery personnel in the event that land-based communications (cell tower or Public Switched Telephone Networks) are compromised.
Like many other local governments across the state, Fort Bend County was seeking a viable non-land-based backup communications system to enhance its current communications and to meet state emergency-response requirements. Each county in Texas is required by state mandate to coordinate public service in a disaster with effective emergency response. The County's ability to do this depends largely on dependable communication with state and federal agencies, hospitals, law enforcement and other first responders. Echo SatCom's SatMAX® system, which enhances Iridium's reliability and strong coverage with mobility and flexibility, offers an affordable, dependable solution to this challenge.
"The Echo SatCom SatMAX system is a critical component of our disaster communications plan and is ready if any or all other means of terrestrial communications are compromised," said Danny Jan, Assistant Fort Bend County Emergency Management Coordinator.
