NG911 for small-midsize organizations. Roadmap and Solutions
Best practices and findings during NG9-1-1 deployment along with considerations affecting smaller organizations. We currently dispatch for Police and Fire. Technical solutions as well as procedural considerations will be discussed. The Owen Sound Police Service currently dispatches for approximately 30 firehalls and 7 police services in Ontario.
Your Plan for NG9-1-1: Removing Operational Barriers
How do PSAPs unlock the power of their information to implement modern-day public safety practices? What are the best practices that can be used to solve, predict and prevent crime? Join us as we discover how your information can be used to make quick, life-saving decisions, keep the Public Safety community safer, reduce risk, increase community engagement and more. You will walk away with: a new perspective on how to implement goals, a solid approach to reduce trial and error inefficiency and a better understanding on how to use data for end-to-end results.

Preparing for a Deposition and Courtroom Testimony
The purpose of this course is to prepare the 9-1-1 officer with an understanding of different types of law, legal concepts, terms and specific issues related to 9-1-1. The course is designed to demonstrate the value of understanding legal terms for 9-1-1 officers so that they are prepared when subpoenaed to testify at a deposition or to testify in court.
The hype around the transition process to NG9-1-1 has created an environment where many agencies are afraid to make a decision on how to move forward. Together we will unravel the mystery, myths and technical details and fill in some blanks on your "To Do" list. For some it may be confirmation of things you are doing right and help you focus on where to go next. For others, it will provide a spring board to action with concrete steps on how to get started.
Next Generation Emergency Communications: What do we want from the Internet of Life Saving things?
The range of type of communication technology is changing dramatically. From Smartphones to connected vehicles, buildings and devices - who and what emergency services will need to communicate with and how they manage this data will change radically over the next few years. In this session we will demonstrate how Canadian Emergency Services can take advantage of additional, enhanced data and turn it into life-saving information that will aid a more appropriate, quicker emergency response.
PSAPS are aware that the mandated NG9-1-1 transition timeline to move from voice-only to digital is looming. While the CRTC has revised its deadline a few times, PSAPS cannot afford to wait to start the transition when it comes to a project of this magnitude. Drawing on experience from assisting PSAPS across the country to plan their transition to NG9-1-1, this presentation will highlight the challenges and opportunities in the migration process and will help demystify the technology involved to help PSAPs better understand what they need to do today to be ready to meet CRTC guidelines.
An exploration of what PSAPs and 9-1-1 Authorities, specifically in Ontario, have been doing (and must do) to prepare for NG9-1-1. This will include vendor RFPs, operational considerations, staffing, GIS, security and technical considerations. In this presentation, we are arranging to have a PSAP/Region co-present to show the process from decision-making to engagement. The goal of the presentation is to demonstrate how some have already started and progressed into their NG9-1-1 journey
