The Future of 911 is Now
Next Generation 911 (NG911) is an IP-based system that allows digital information including voice telephone calls, text messaging, photos, videos and other multi-media messages to be delivered from the public to local Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) through the 911 network. NG911 provides PSAPs with the most accurate information about the emergency situation, allowing first responders to do their job more efficiently, respond faster, and save lives.
“Hamilton has been providing 911 service to its subscribers since its introduction in 1968. We were involved very early in the provision of Caller ID for 911 services, as well as in the subsequent conversion to E911. In addition, we have become very familiar with 911 agencies and public service organizations across the country through our telecommunications relay and captioned telephone services. We now have the resources to take a larger role in the country’s conversion to Next Generation 911.”
