Session Overview

Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) is transformative and will modernize 9-1-1 service response in Canada. It is the transition of 9-1-1 from analogue telecom systems to IP-based telecom systems as mandated by the CRTC and will allow emergency communications to use more precise location-based technology. GIS data from authoritative sources, such as municipalities, will be required to provide real-time location verification, call routing, resource allocation and analysis for NG9-1-1.

In this webinar, you will learn about the NG9-1-1 initiative, how it will impact different organizations and how to prepare for upcoming changes.

Join our panel of NG9-1-1 experts from the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Canada and the Emergency Services Working Group (ESWG) for this informative session.
