Next Generation 911

NG911 GraphicNext Generation 911 (NG911) is a secure Internet Protocol (IP) based system, utilizing high speed data connectivity capable of receiving information to include voice, text messages, pictures and videos. A statewide  NG911 system once implemented will also allow for seamless information sharing between citizens and 911 centers.

In 2018, state lawmakers passed LB 993 approving the 911 Service System, Next Generation 911 (NG911) Master Plan. With the approval of the NG911 Master Plan the role of the PSC shifted from administration of the E911 fund to the implementation and operation of a statewide NG911 system. A 16-member 911 Service System Advisory Committee was appointed and will play a key role in the transition to a statewide system. The Committee is tasked with making recommendations to the Commission on the implementation, coordination, operation, management, maintenance and funding related to NG911 in Nebraska.
