What is the NG911 NOW Coalition?
National public safety leaders and industry have joined together to create a coalition focused on rapidly accelerating the deployment of Next Generation 911 (NG911). The NG911 NOW Coalition, whose members are working to address the funding, technical, policy and legislative challenges that have stalled more rapid NG911 implementation, is calling on government officials across the country to support the NG911 transition.
The NG911 NOW Coalition’s mission is to promote an accelerated
implementation of NG911 throughout the nation.
The NG911 NOW Coalition is comprised of leading 911 associations in the country, i.e., the National Emergency Number Association (NENA), the National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA), and the Industry Council for Emergency Response Technologies (iCERT), and is working in cooperation with the NG9-1-1 Institute and experts in government and academia.
By the end of the year 2020, all 911 systems and centers in all 56 states and territories will have sufficiently funded, standards-based, end-to-end, IP-based 911 capabilities, and will have retired legacy 911 systems, without any degradation in service to the public.
