ABSTRACT
The article discusses the expected changes in the recording and record-keeping of public safety answering points (PSAPs) when PSAPs switch over to next generation 911 (NG-911) systems. It notes that NG-911 systems will have the capability to accept more types of input formats and record all events from the time a call comes in through the Emergency Services Internetwork (ESInet). The National Emergency Number Association and the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials are also working on standards that will make interoperability possible.
