National 911 Program Partners with NASNA on New Resource on NG9-1-1 and FirstNet

The National 911 Program and the National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA) have created a 16-page brochure NG911 & FirstNet Guide for State and Local Authorities to help local authorities understand the difference between NG 9-1-1 and FirstNet as decisions are made about the future of emergency communications.

“It is imperative to the 9-1-1 community, first responders and the public that these two systems work together seamlessly,” said Laurie Flaherty, coordinator of the National 911 Program. “They are two parts of the whole, and are both critical in bringing 9-1-1 into the digital age.”
