The presentation, Next Gen 911 - Mind the Gap, Identifying Missing Sub-Addresses, focuses on JMT Technology Group's solution to tricky addressing scenarios related to the next generation of 911 services. Nick's presentation offers insights based on his many years as an emergency responder - including his experience as a fire fighter in South Carolina.
Next Generation 911 (NG911) will support modern communication methods such as text, videos, and photos - in addition to voice, to increase the efficiency of emergency service response. By utilizing layers of data to create more efficient locating, routing, dispatching and handling of 911 calls, as well as acceptance and sharing of more digital data feeds to first responders, NG911 represents a critical upgrade to public safety.
