On September 22, 2011, the Federal Communications Commission adopted a Notice of Proposed Rule making in the Next Generation 911 (NG911) proceeding. The NG911 NPRM sought comment on a number of issues related to accelerating the development and deployment of NG911 technology that will enable the public to send emergency communications to 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) via text, photos, videos, and data and enhance the information available to PSAPs and first responders for assessing and responding to emergencies. The NG911 NPRM set deadlines for filing comments and reply comments at 60 and 90 days after publication in the Federal Register.

On October 12, 2011, the Federal Register published a summary of the NG911 NPRM. Accordingly, comments must be filed on or before December 12, 2011; and reply comments must be filed on or before January 10, 2012. The NG911 NPRM sets forth the comment filing instructions.

For further information regarding this proceeding, contact Patrick Donovan, Attorney Advisor, Policy Division, Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, (202) 418-241.
