This series addresses the comments and questions we’ve heard from many of you regarding NG9-1-1. We’ve taken your comments and broken them down into the 9 logical steps so you have pragmatic way to approach NG9-1-1 implementation from both a planning and an investment perspective.

Jeff Gillan, Product Area Business Manager – NG9-1-1 Core Services, will present the series. Many of you know Jeff and know how practical he is in ensuring all PSAPs have a solid plan for NG9-1-1.

“I want PSAPs to walk away from each session in the series feeling they are more in control of the steps they need to take to move from a legacy E9-1-1 system to NG9-1-1 in a timeframe that works for their center and budget,” said Jeff.

Jeff says that by looking at the implementation of NG9-1-1 as series of distinct steps, PSAPs will have a much better way to evaluate the benefits and what they want to do given their budgets, and the needs of their centers.

“Our goal is that every PSAP who participates in all three sessions will have not just a plan to implement NG9-1-1, but a plan that includes the necessary activities they need to accomplish with each step,” said Jeff.

The series is stretched over a four month period to allow PSAPs time to analyze each step and the accompanying activities in preparation for the next session. It is essentially a mini course in creating a customized plan for NG9-1-1 and is designed especially for supervisors and coordinators for 9-1-1 and radio.

Jeff added, “We will be looking at how radio fits into the picture of Next Generation and the benefits of IP for all public safety services.”
