    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    In 2015, the State of Pennsylvania legislature passed Act 12, which amended PA Title 35, Chapter 53, 9-1-

    1 Emergency Communications Services. The legislation makes it possible to enhance emergency

    communications throughout the Commonwealth, which will result in the implementation of advanced

    technology to support emergency services statewide. Central to this technology evolution is the

    Commonwealth-wide migration from legacy 9-1-1 systems to Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) technology.

    As PEMA and the Commonwealth's public safety answering points (PSAPs) transition to an NG9-1-1

    environment, the need for a robust Geographic Information System (GIS) capability increases rapidly.

    This is driven by a desire to improve emergency response by enhancing the ability to locate emergency

    callers. Indeed, the advanced location capabilities of GIS are the foundation of NG9-1-1. The core services

    within an NG9-1-1 system rely on GIS to provide both the most basic location services, as well as advanced

    analysis of the spatial interrelations that exist between the multitudes of data layers that support the 9-1-1

    mission. Local and State agencies across the Commonwealth recognize GIS as a
