Introduction Presented by Gordon Chinander, GISP Metropolitan Emergency Services Board Jackie Mines, ENP Minnesota Department of Public Safety Kathy Liljequist, GISP GeoComm, Inc.
Topics of Discussion History of / E9-1-1 & NG9-1-1 GIS utilization in E9-1-1/NG9-1-1
History of 911 March 10, 1876 Alexander Graham Bell made the first call for help during testing of his gear, when he spilled battery acid on his clothing and said those famous words…Watson, come here. I want you! July 8, 1937 Britain implements its 999 emergency telephone system serving police, fire and ems The National Fire Chiefs reportedly suggest a single number for reporting fires June 21, 1959 North America first 999 system was introduced in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada
History of 911 Feb 1967 President Lyndon Johnson Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice issues its report recommending a single number to call, and that number should be used nationwide. Jan 12, 1968 AT&T announces their designation of 911 as a universal number at a press conference in Wash DC. Why 911? It came down to the fact that the digit 9 was the easiest to clear for access, because in many systems it was already clear; in others, equipment changes were small. The caller would then place the finger into the 1 st position on the dial (rotary) and dial it two times. The outcome would be 9-1-1!
History of pm, Feb 16, 1968 First 911 call was made in Haleyville, AL. using a Bright Red phone 1976 The city of Chicago, IL, claimed to have the nations first Enhanced 911 system of any major city.
History of 911 December 1982 Minneapolis-St. Paul implements an E911 system that was reportedly the first multi-county Enhanced system in the country. It served the seven surrounding counties. In 2006 this system was expanded to 8 counties and is still, geographically, the largest Enhanced 911 system in the country March 31, 1998 The first phase 1 system (wireless calls display phone number and address or receiving tower) in the US in Allen County (Ind.) April 1, 1998 Wireless carriers must be able to supply Phase I capability

ALI Controller ANI Controller PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) Carrier End Office = Voice Path ANI Automatic Number Identification ALI Database Subscriber dials 911 Caller dials from either wireline or wireless and call is routed to end office switch. End office switch sends voice and telephone number to PSAP Voice/ANI Basic Call Delivery PBX
ALI Controller ANI Controller PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) Selective Router Carrier End Office = Voice Path = Data Path ANI Automatic Number Identification Hillcrest Dr. N. Or Latitude/Longitude ALI Database Subscriber dials 911 Caller dials from either wireline or wireless and call is routed to end office switch. End office switch sends voice and telephone number (ANI) to the Selective Router. Selective Router verifies routing instructions and sends Voice and ANI to correct Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). PSAP requests a bid for location information (ALI) from ALI Database. ALI Database sends location information back to PSAP. All happens within seconds. ALI: Automatic Location Information Voice/ANI 911 (Send) Wireless Carrier End Office Successful for more than 30 years but stretched to the limit!! Todays E9-1-1 Call Delivery 2 56K circuits PBX
Next Generation What is Next Generation (NG9-1-1) Fundamental objective of NG9-1-1 is interoperability of network and systems for voice, data and radio among emergency response agencies at a local, regional and national level Set of coordinated applications on an IP internetwork that services multiple government functions and seamlessly interfaces voice and electronic data

Minnesota Governor Councils EPC NG911 Workgroup Goal: To educate Minnesotas 911 community on the role of GIS in Next Generation Co-Chairs Jackie Mines, ENP – DPS State 911 Program Gordon Chinander, GISP Metropolitan Emergency Services Board
Minnesota Governor Councils EPC NG911 Workgroup Agenda Educate Minnesotas community on the efforts to standardize, on a national level, NG9-1-1 GIS Datasets Provide guidance and data standards (per NENA) for GIS datasets that are to utilized for Support and provide documentation to Minnesotas communities for preparing GIS data for use in NG9-1-1 Reconciling centerlines with Master Street Address Guides (MSAG), and Emergency Service Zone (ESZ) Synchronizing street centerlines with MSAG Creation of Delta MSAGs Develop support through various means to establish GIS datasets (geocodeable street centerlines, Emergency Service Zones) in Minnesota communities.
