The 911 protocol system provider joins Living Social, Edible Arrangements, CDW and Lifelock among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
“Being named to the Inc. 5000 is a tremendous accomplishment for our team and our customers,” said Chris Salafia, President and CEO of PowerPhone. “It further validates our belief that emergency call handling is on the cusp of great change and we as a company are very well positioned to help move the 911 industry forward.

PowerPhone’s flagship product, Total Response®, is a comprehensive system of training and technology solutions designed to assist 911 call takers and dispatchers in enhancing the standard of care provided to emergency callers and to public safety responders in the field.
“Despite serving 911 for nearly thirty years, PowerPhone has a start-up mentality,” said Salafia. “We are excited for what the future holds and will continue to innovate and challenge the status quo to help make 911 better. Our customers and the communities they serve deserve nothing less.”
The Inc. list only includes companies that are privately held, for profit and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. Chris Salafia will be representing PowerPhone at the Inc. 5000 Awards Ceremony in Washington DC on October 10-12, 2013.
