CISA Encourages Shared Communications System and Infrastructure (SCSI).
Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG911) is defined as "an Internet Protocol (IP)-based system comprised of managed Emergency Services IP networks (ESInets), functional elements (applications), databases, and call handling systems (CHS) that replicate traditional E9-1-1 features and functions and provides additional capabilities. NG9-1-1 is designed to provide access to emergency services from all connected communications sources, and provide multimedia data capabilities for Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and other emergency service organizations." (Task Force on Optimal Public Safety Answering Point Architecture (TFOPA) Working Group 2 Phase II Supplemental Report: NG9-1-1 Readiness Scorecard).
The SAFECOM-NCSWIC Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG911) Working Group utilizes stakeholder feedback from multiple levels of government to identify, document, and develop work products that will facilitate the transition to NG911.

Emergency alert, warning, and notification (AWN) systems protect lives and property by identifying information about an impending threat, communicating that information to those who need it, and facilitating the timely taking of protective actions.
To enhance this critical information sharing across all AWN systems, SAFECOM and the National Council of Statewide Interoperability Coordinators, in collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, developed the Ten Keys to Improving Emergency Alerts, Warnings, and Notifications.
