New Look 9-1-1 – Everything Will Change… Except the Numbers

The Maryland General Assembly this year approved (and Governor Hogan signed) SB 339/ HB 397, Public Safety – 9-1-1 Emergency Telephone System (Carl Henn’s Law), a 2019 MACo Legislative Initiative to update state laws, and the 9-1-1 financing system to provide the flexibility and resources needed for the deployment of a statewide Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG911) system.

But the legislation is only the first step in ensuring a timely, well-coordinated, consistent, and secure rollout of a statewide NG911 network. Cybersecurity, emerging technologies, interconnectivity, and records retention are just some of the issues on the 2019 agenda for the Commission to Advance Next Generation 9-1-1 Across Maryland.

At this year’s MACo Summer Conference, learn how Maryland is accelerating its move toward NG911, harnessing public safety industry leadership and expertise, and focusing on effective coordination with communications providers to deliver these essential services equitably across the state:
