911 Modernization Steps Announced

The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency has selected Comtech Telecommunications to partner with PEMA and the commonwealth’s 911 centers to upgrade Pennsylvania’s 911 system to a Next Generation 911 platform. This effort will take place across Pennsylvania and allow for more data communication to 911 and improve access for the deaf and hard of hearing. This seven-year, $137 million upgrade is funded by the $1.65 911 surcharge on Pennsylvania communications. Click here for more.
