Floridians Move Forward with Phone Relay Service

Apr 28, 2011

A phone call can mean so much

Helping to lend a hand or just an ear, Florida is looking to continue work with the non-for-profit organization that sets up relay phone services for the deaf, impaired and hard of hearing.

The Florida Telecommunications Relay is a 24/7 telephone service running 365 days out of the year. The program provides residents with a hearing loss or hearing impairment with special phone equipment.

As the program’s contract was about to expire with Sprint, the Florida Public Service Commission had to vote to continue the program. They’re now waiting for proposals from new telecommunications companies, but have already heard interest from many companies, meaning the program should continue to provide this great service until June 2012. You can find out more about this program here.

Just one phone call can mean a lot to a person. We think this program is a great way to provide the most basic communication to Florida residents.
