On June 14, 2016, the NG911 NOW Coalition announced that it has created a new program designed to expand participation in the Coalition and to coalesce national, state, and local efforts around a unified goal of deploying Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) services by the end of 2020.  The “NG911 NOW Partners Program” will support the Coalition’s efforts to broaden support for NG9-1-1 by establishing alliances with organizations that are key to effective NG9-1-1 implementation.

Joining the NG911 NOW Coalition on June 14th as its first “Partners” are five organizations that recognize the importance of NG9-1-1 in enhancing the nation’s 9-1-1 systems to create a faster, more flexible, resilient, and scalable system that will allow 9-1-1 to keep pace with continued advancements in technology.

The Internet2 Technology Evaluation Center (ITEC), a center within the Academy for Advanced Telecommunications and Learning Technologies at Texas A&M University, will provide valuable technical expertise to the Coalition on NG911 and other IP-based technologies.

The 911 Education Foundation (9EF), a research subsidiary of iCERT focused on emergency response support to public safety stakeholders, and the NG911 Institute, a not-for-profit organization that serves as an educational resource for the Congressional NextGen 911 Caucus , will help the Coalition to raise awareness of NG9-1-1 issues and educate policymakers and affected stakeholders on the benefits of accelerating NG9-1-1 deployment.

The National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) and the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA), two organizations committed to the advancement and use of geographic information systems (GIS), will help the Coalition drive the advancement of GIS initiatives, which are important to leveraging the full benefits of NG9-1-1.

The Coalition appreciates the commitment that these organizations have made, and will continue to make, in advancing NG9-1-1 deployment across the country, and we look forward to working closely with these organizations in the coming months and years.  The Coalition invites other interested individuals and organizations to join us in our collective efforts.  For more information visit: www.NG911NOW.org .
