ECC 9-1-1 PSAP
Emergency Communications Center, 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point.

If you have an Emergency Call, 9-1-1, the call gets answered by us; or goes to a nearby PSAP in the region.  Wyoming is moving toward NG911.  Niobrara County must be onboard as two different states, South Dakota and Nebraska, board us.  We have a low population density, yet hundreds of thousands drive through each year.  It is only a matter of time before they will need to call 9-1-1.  If we are not here, there will be no one to send help.

We aim to have local people trained and certified who know the county and region yet can meet an NG911 national standard.  Before we can do that, we must ensure we can communicate with the public.

FAQs of Niobrara Dispatch

What is NG911

Next Generation 911 (commonly referred to as NG911) is a digital, internet protocol (IP)-based system that will replace the analog 911 infrastructure that’s been in place for decades.

The success and reliability of 911 will be greatly improved with the implementation of NG911, as it will enhance emergency number services to create a faster, more resilient system that allows voice, photos, videos, and text messages to flow seamlessly from the public to the 911 network. NG911 will also improve public safety answering points’ ability to help manage call overload, natural disasters, and the transfer of 911 calls based on caller location data.

Because most 911 systems were originally built using analog rather than digital technologies, PSAPs across the country must be upgraded to NG911. While the technology to implement these new IP-based 911 systems is available, the transition to NG911 involves much more than just new computer hardware and software. Implementing NG911 in states and counties nationwide will require coordinating various emergency communication, public safety, and legislative and governing entities.
