Echo SatCom Launches Hurricane Preparedness Program.

HOUSTON -- Officials of Echo Satellite Communications, Inc. (Other OTC:ECSC), a leading global provider of wireless, non-line-of-sight satellite communications products and services, announced a hurricane awareness marketing push, targeting first responders and emergency preparedness centers throughout the Gulf Coast region. Fort Bend County, Texas, one of the fastest growing counties in the country, has already purchased an ECSC portable SatMAX[R] Emergency Communications System.

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. The County's ability to meet a state-mandated emergency response coordination responsibility depends largely on dependable communication with state and federal agencies, hospitals, law enforcement and other first responders. Echo SatCom's SatMAX[R] system offers an affordable, dependable solution to this challenge, helping to ensure constant satellite telephone communication for disaster recovery personnel in the event that land-based communications are compromised.

"The Echo 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.


Echo Satellite Communications, Inc. is dedicated to providing global wireless, non-line-of-sight, satellite voice and data communications links to government, military, and commercial and industrial customers. ECSC has a full array of wireless, non-line-of-sight communications solutions for military, governmental, first responder, and industrial users. For more information, please visit
