This session will provide an update on NG9-1-1, describe the potential issues and opportunities for PSAPs, and address the integration of NG9-1-1 systems and centers with other emerging technologies and services.

Apps are already being used for public safety and emergency response. Hear how APCO is working with stakeholders to ensure development of the most effective apps possible.

Get the latest information on the progress and future plans of FirstNet in its efforts to implement a nationwide, interoperable, public safety broadband network.

Advanced communications networks, including FirstNet and NG9-1-1 bring the promise of substantial benefit to the public safety community, but are also vulnerable to cyber threats. Get up to speed on the potential risks, what you can expect, and how to prepare.
