E-1-1 Services Board. Designates the E-911 Services Board as the 9-1-1 Services Board (board). The powers and duties of the Board are revised to authorize and direct it to (i) support and assist public safety answering points (PSAPs) in the provision of 9-1-1 operations and services; (ii) plan, promote, and assist in the statewide development, deployment, and maintenance of an emergency services IP network to support future 9-1-1 and other public safety applications and technologies; and (iii) consult and coordinate with other entities. An "emergency services IP network," among other things, provides an IP transport infrastructure that supports next generation 9-1-1 service core functions. "Next generation 9-1-1 service" is defined as a service that automatically directs 9-1-1 emergency telephone calls and other emergency service requests in data formats to the appropriate PSAPs by routing using geographical information system data. The measure also requires the 9-1-1 Services Board to develop or adopt and publish standards for an emergency services IP network and core next generation 9-1-1 services on that network to ensure that enhanced public safety telephone services seamlessly interoperate within the Commonwealth and with surrounding states.
