URISA NextGen 911 Task Force

Ask the Experts Panel: One of the many educational products of URISA's NextGen 911 Task Force (January 2021)

URISA's NextGen 911 Task Force was established to leverage the expertise of key URISA members in order to support and educate GIS professionals about Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1).

The goals of the task force include: 

  • Provide information about the critical role GIS plays in NG9-1-1 and for public safety applications. 
  • Educate the GIS Community on ways  NG9-1-1 facilitates GIS collaboration through the implementation of standards.  
  • Conduct educational workshops and webinars.
  • Solicit input from various organizations across the country about their experience with implementing NG9-1-1
  • Enhance NG9-1-1 task force membership and involvement in URISA.
