The City of New Orleans is launching a new technology that allows residents and visitors to use video and text to call 911. The technology is known at c-Live Universe. New Orleans recently adopted this technology in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The city is also excited that the video technology and texting can be helpful for people who are in dangerous situations where speaking would alert an intruder to their presence. No additional apps are needed because the communication is done through a text chat.
