Next Generation 9-1-1 is an initiative aimed at updating the 9-1-1 service infrastructure in the United States and Canada to improve public emergency communications services in a growingly wireless mobile society. The twenty-one P.S.A.P.S. (Public Safety Answering Points) throughout the County will be outfitted with advanced equipment connected to a very robust network that will serve as the routing and transport for the voice calls, s.m.s. (short message service), and m.m.s. (multi-media messaging service) placed to 9-1-1.
