Revision of Model State 911 Plan and Guidelines for State NG911 Legislative Language

In early 2018, the Program convened a team of 911 stakeholders to modify and update the Guidelines for State NG911 Legislative Language: Examples and Options for Legislative Language to Facilitate Deployment of Next Generation 911, published in 2012, and the Model State 911 Plan, published in 2013, to help systems prepare for and implement NG911 capabilities. The updates include providing guidance on overcoming challenges inherent in today’s technological landscape, accounting for shifts in how the public accesses 911 services, and detailed best practices and example approaches.


In the fall, the project team solicited public comments on new drafts of the two documents, and released the updated documents in the winter. The new Guidelines for State NG911 Legislative Language: Examples and Options for Legislative Language to Facilitate Deployment of Next Generation 911 and the Model State 911 Plan are now available.
