Lincoln Neb. ,  On Wednesday, June 13, the Nebraska Public Service Commission  (PSC) will hold a workshop to implement provisions of LB993 and to establish a funding  mechanism for Next Generation 911 (NG911) service in accordance with the 911 Service
System Act.

“Now that LB993 has become law there are several steps the Commission must take as it moves  towards implementation of NG911,” said David Sankey, State 9-1-1 Director. “Determining how
to allocate monies from the 911 Service System Fund is among the many items to be discussed  during the June workshop.”

The workshop will also look at creating a mechanism for determining the level of funding available, as well as establishing standards and criteria for the disbursement of monies from the
911 Service System Fund for the planning, implementation, coordination, operation, management and maintenance of the 911 service system.

The workshop will be held beginning at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, June 13, in the Commission Hearing Room, 300 The Atrium, 1200 N Street, in Lincoln.

Dir. Sankey said, “We would encourage anyone currently involved in public safety or with an  interest in the future of public safety in Nebraska to attend.”
