Transitioning from the traditional 9-1-1 voice services to Next Generation-911 (NG-911) is complex and will impact every emergency service in the Province of Ontario. It is in this vein that on June 18, 2019, representatives from the following organizations met to form the Next Generation-911 Interagency Advisory Panel (NG-911 IAP):
The purpose of the NG-911 IAP is to provide expert analysis, advice and recommendations to the Government of Ontario, which has formed the Inter-Ministerial Task Force on 9-1-1 Emergency Response. IT will confine its work to the areas directly related to NG-911 and its implementation, fully cognizant of the upcoming key implementation dates. The NG-911 IAP is consulting with our respective organizations and will be starting the process of drafting recommendations to the “Inter-Ministerial Task Force on 9-1-1 Emergency Response” for consideration.
Chief Kimberley Greenwood (Barrie PS) and Executive Director Jeff McGuire (OACP) will sit on this Panel as the OACP representatives.
