Overview: Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) is increasingly getting more attention in the GIS world. There is a lot to learn about 9-1-1 before you can understand how GIS plays a role in NG9-1-1. This webinar will be a brief introduction to some of the most important concepts in 9-1-1 and GIS for NG9-1-1. Finally, we'll provide next steps and resources for GIS professionals that may play a role in their 9-1-1 Authority's deployment of NG9-1-1.

Presenter: Jeff Ledbetter is a GIS, public safety, addressing and GIS technology subject matter expert with nearly two decades in GIS. His unique skill as a "translator" helps both technical and non-technical people understand public safety, addressing and GIS concepts and the technology that supports them. Since 2009 Mr. Ledbetter has been supporting GIS technology in 9-1-1 Call Centers and Emergency Operations Centers. Mr. Ledbetter is a Public Safety GIS Expert with Michael Baker International based out of San Diego, CA and holds GIS Professional (GISP) and Emergency Number Professional (ENP) certifications.
