9-1-1 To Go – Live Demo and Discussion at #MACoCon

The MACo Summer Conference will feature a live demonstration of Next Generation 9-1-1 technology.

For the 9-1-1 community, the pandemic demonstrated the need to plan for alternate ways to work. Beyond providing access to significant next-generation functionality, the remote redundancy of a cloud-based NG911 system simplifies and bolsters operational continuity when an emergency event threatens a 9-1-1 center.

As previously reported on Conduit Street, the Commission to Advance NG911 Across Maryland, a 2018 MACo Legislative Initiative, was established to update state laws and the 9-1-1 financing system to provide the flexibility and resources needed for the deployment of a statewide NG911 system. In 2019, the General Assembly passed landmark legislation to update state laws and the 9-1-1 financing system to provide the flexibility and resources needed to deploy a statewide NG911 system.

Additionally, the Commission’s work led to several laws to bolster the framework and resources to guide a successful statewide transition to NG911, enhancing public safety communications across the state.

The 2022 MACo Summer Conference will feature a live demonstration of NG911 remote call-taking technology, critical for ensuring resiliency and redundancy for Maryland’s 24 county 9-1-1 centers.
