The National 911 Program and the National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA) worked with public safety leaders in Fire, EMS, and Law Enforcement to create a non-technical resource for state and local leaders. This consumer-ready, graphical NG911 & FirstNet guide explains what the two systems are, their similarities and differences, and how they work together. The guide offers a look at the current state of the nation’s emergency system, important considerations when implementing NG911 and FirstNet, and the value these systems bring to the public and emergency response community.
The Guide includes two feature articles how NG911 and FirstNet came about, and how various members of the public safety community will interact with each system. It also includes two depictions of the two systems working together, and how they are different. Click here to view and download the articles and infographics.
As these two systems are implemented, it’s important for the public safety and emergency response community to understand them and be able to share that knowledge with others. A variety of resources are available to enable outreach and education, including articles, slides decks, infographics and videos.
