NG9-1-1 Institute Joins the NG911 Now Coalition's "Partners Program"
June 14, 2016

COALITION ESTABLISHES “PARTNERS PROGRAM” TO PROMOTE STRATEGIC ALLIANCES FOR ACCELERATING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NG911

The NG911 NOW Coalition announced today that it has created a new program designed to expand participation in the Coalition and to coalesce national, state, and local efforts around a unified goal of deploying Next Generation 911 (NG911) services by the end of 2020.  The “NG911 NOW Partners Program” will support the Coalition’s efforts to broaden support for NG911 by establishing alliances with organizations that are key to effective NG911 implementation.

Joining the NG911 NOW Coalition today as its first “Partners” are five organizations that recognize the importance of NG911 in enhancing the nation’s 911 systems to create a faster, more flexible, resilient, and scalable system that will allow 911 to keep pace with continued advancements in technology.

The Internet2 Technology Evaluation Center (ITEC), a center within the Academy for Advanced Telecommunications and Learning Technologies at Texas A&M University, will provide valuable technical expertise to the Coalition on NG911 and other IP-based technologies.

The 911 Education Foundation (9EF), a research subsidiary of iCERT focused on emergency response support to public safety stakeholders, and theNG911 Institute, a not-for-profit organization that serves as an educational resource for the Congressional NextGen 9-1-1 Caucus , will help the Coalition to raise awareness of NG911 issues and educate policymakers and affected stakeholders on the benefits of accelerating NG911 deployment.

The National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) and the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA), two organizations committed to the advancement and use of geographic information systems (GIS), will help the Coalition drive the advancement of GIS initiatives, which are important to leveraging the full benefits of NG911.

The Coalition appreciates the commitment that these organizations have made, and will continue to make, in advancing NG911 deployment across the country, and we look forward to working closely with these organizations in the coming months and years.  The Coalition invites other interested individuals and organizations to join us in our collective efforts.  For more information visit: www.NG911NOW.org.

The NG911 Now Coalition was established by the National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA), the National Emergency Number Association (NENA), and the Industry Council for Emergency Response Technologies (iCERT), and is aided by experts in the federal government, academia, and industry.  The mission of the NG911 NOW Coalition is to promote an accelerated implementation of NG911 throughout the nation.
