How NG9-1-1 Advances Emergency Services

NG911 is an advanced system designed to improve emergency communication. It does so by enabling multiple people to have access to emergency services via the various ways they communicate. This includes text messages, images, and videos, giving first responders a more comprehensive understanding of the situation, allowing for quicker and more precise response. Additionally, the ability to share real-time data such as live video feeds or location tracking helps in dispatching resources effectively, potentially saving crucial minutes in critical situations.

The next advancement is the GIS technology on the IP-based network. GIS technology is the backbone providing precise geospatial information to first responders. We no longer need to rely on 911 operators struggling to understand a caller’s location. GIS data provides dispatchers with maps, addresses, and live location tracking. This empowers dispatchers to quickly, and accurately, pinpoint where a caller is located. This occurs whether the call is made from a mobile device or a landline phone.
