Communications Division


Text to 9-1-1

CAPCOG is currently implementing Text to 9-1-1 throughout the 10-county region. Text to 9-1-1 is the ability to send a "short message" (SMS) also known as a text message to a 9-1-1 call center. Texting during an emergency could be helpful if you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability, or if a voice call might otherwise be dangerous or impossible. Read an FAQ about Text to 9-1-1.

The Communications Center is responsible for all public safety communications functions for the City of Marble Falls, the City of Granite Shoals, the City of Horseshoe Bay and the City of Cottonwood Shores. The Communications Center strives to deliver the most professional, efficient, and courteous services to every citizen, visitor and public safety personnel.

Duties include answering 9-1-1 and non-emergency phone calls, documenting Calls for Service (CFS) into our Computer Aided Dispatch System (CAD), process information through several law enforcement and emergency notification computers, hand le various administrative assignments, disseminate criminal and non-criminal information to Police, Fire, EMS, and on-call Utility personnel via the Western Region Radio System.
