Overview

Americans have come to rely on 911 for emergencies, but very few call centers can receive text messages, pictures or videos—all standard communications in today’s world. Next Generation 911 is aimed at updating the infrastructure for today's digital mobile society. In this session, speakers will discuss key issues in modernizing 911, including funding, technology, governance and collaboration.
