Digital NG911 Readiness Checklist, Coordinating 911 and DoD Activities in Washington State - "State of 911" Webinar on September 18     

Learn more about how the NG911 Readiness Checklist - a resource developed by the FCC's TFOPA - may soon be easier to use when a new digital version is released by the Joint SAFECOM/NCSWIC NG911 Working Group. Learn more about the intent of the self-assessment tool and how the development of an online version is progressing for state and local agency use.  

How do you coordinate with DoD installations in your jurisdiction? Interaction between DoD and state and local partners differs drastically state-by-state and across the country. The Washington State Enhanced 911 Office will share how it strives to develop a consistent statewide coordination solution that meets the needs of the state, local partners and the three major DoD hubs within the state.

The following key issues and topics will be addressed:

  • Agreements & MOUs
  • Governance
  • Connecting to an ESInet
  • Funding
  • Shared & Joint jurisdiction

Speakers include:

  • David Furth, Deputy Chief, Federal Communications Commission Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau
  • Mark Buchholz, Director Williamette Valley    9-1-1 Communications Division and Chair of the Joint SAFECOM/NCSWIC NG911 Working Group 
  • Gerald Jaskulski, DHS Office of Emergency Communications (OEC) and Federal lead for the Joint SAFECOM/NCSWIC NG911 Working Group
  • Adam Wasserman, Washington State Enhanced 911 Coordinator

Missed the last State of 911 Webinar? 

For the past year, 911 administrators, statewide interoperability coordinators, governors' offices, legislators and others have met state-by-state to collaborate in developing action-oriented plans to enhance state governance structures in emergency communication. In the archived July webinar, listen to representatives from the Department of Homeland Security discuss lessons learned and the benefits of participating in these workshops.
