Next Generation 911 or NG911 is an Internet Protocol (IP) system that will allow Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) to process digital information. Information such as text messages, video, pictures and telematics can be passed from the public to the PSAP and on to first responders.
Becoming NG911 ready is as 911.gov advises, not as easy as replacing a computer. NG911 is a moving target as technology evolves and industry standards change. The 911 Coordinating Council mission continues to be to implement a coordinated, sustainable and comprehensive NG911 service for Kansas PSAPs.
