GeoComm was recently selected by the Texas Commission on State Emergency Communications (CSEC) to facilitate the development of the CSEC NG9-1-1 GIS Data Standard.  Kathy Liljequist, GISP and GeoComm GIS Consultant, led the Emergency Communications Advisory Committee (ECAC) which consisted of stakeholders from throughout the state, to review NG9-1-1 system requirements and identify the GIS data layers that would be part of the state-level standards.

Once the standards were finalized, the ECAC provided the CSEC with a comprehensive document outlining all of the GIS data requirements needed to meet the CSEC NG9-1-1 standards.  These GIS standards will be utilized in CSEC’s NG9-1-1 system to ensure that accurate emergency call routing and location verification is taking place. “This was a huge step and a key milestone for the CSEC to move forward in developing its NG9-1-1 system,” said Kelli Merriweather, CSEC Executive Director.  “GeoComm did an excellent job working with statewide stakeholders and most definitely helped make it a success.”

“GIS data will play a large role in a NG9-1-1 environment, primarily to validate locations and route 9-1-1 calls, regardless of the calling device.  We applaud the CSEC in taking this vital step to ensure the GIS data being used in their NG9-1-1 system is well maintained and interoperable,” Kathy Liljequist, GeoComm GIS Consultant.

GeoComm was also selected recently by CSEC to provide NG9-1-1 GIS Managed Services to the State of Texas http://www.geo-comm.com/csec-project

CSEC, an agency of the State of Texas statutorily designated as the state’s authority on emergency communications, is charged with oversight and funding of the 9-1-1 programs administered by participating Regional Planning Commissions in the State of Texas and the Statewide Poison Control Program.  Members of the CSEC board of directors represent various public and private sectors interests for Municipal Emergency Communications Districts, Regional Planning Commissions, County Government, Emergency Communications Districts and the general public.
