TN 911 districts to get $25 million

The Tennessee Emergency Communications Board has voted to distribute $25 million to local emergency communications districts this year.
The funds will allow the local districts to buy equipment for the Next Generation 911 project.

The funding plan will provide each district with $120,000 plus an additional amount determined by the district’s population.

The state is moving ahead with plans to convert 911 to a digital system and expects to begin deployment of NG 911 by early 2011.

The board is part of the Department of Commerce and Insurance.
