Resources for States
The National 911 Program's role is to coordinate information sharing and support the state and local agencies providing 911 services across the nation.
Each city, county and State will implement changes to its 911 systems and manage the evolution to Next Generation 911 (NG911) technologies in the manner most appropriate for the community's needs.
Projects and activities of the National 911 Program serves the purpose of supporting States, counties, 911 authorities and agencies in the constant effort to improve 911 services. Some of the projects the Program has led or supported include:
- Development of Model Legislative Language Guidelines
- Standards for Enhanced and Next Generation 911
- State 911 Assessment Program
- Recommended 911 Minimum Training for Telecommunicators
Federal coordination with States is critical in helping communities across the nation realize the benefit of optimal 911 services.
