Across the nation, there are more than 5,400 public safety answering points (PSAPs). The Department of Defense (DoD) alone has 220 PSAPs in the United States (U.S.) and abroad. As the nation transitions to Next Generation 911 (NG911), it's critical that federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial (FSLTT) agencies collaborate to ensure operability and interoperability across our nation's 911 systems and ensure no call for services goes unanswered, regardless if the call originates from a local restaurant, a national park, or off the U.S. coast.

During this session, learn about Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), DoD, and the Department of Transportation (DOT) initiatives to support nationwide NG911 transition. Engage with federal partners to discuss gaps or challenges with NG911 transition and identify opportunities for collaboration.
