The purpose of the Next Generation 911 (NG911) Committee is to advise the Statewide Emergency Communications Board on all matters relating to uniform 911 network design characteristics and policies and procedures to ensure Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) interoperability across the state using open architecture and implementation of a coordinated statewide Next Generation 911 plan. The NG911 Committee will plan the migration to, use of, and maintenance for the statewide NG911 system.

Minnesota public safety answering points (PSAPs) are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the four new classes of service to the state's 911 network related to advanced location. Minnesota PSAPs are asked to be ready for these changes by Dec. 16, 2019.
