The Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) was established as a committee of the 9-1-1 Services Board (the Board) on March 11, 2021.  Its purpose is to study and make recommendations regarding the implementation of the statewide Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) emergency communications system and its impact on Virginia’s current and future 9-1-1 ecosystem.

At the direction of the Board, the RAC will provide advice on new technologies, technical diversity, operational improvements, and best practices for public safety communications, emergency response, and the stakeholder communities. This will include strengthening technology and cyber security protection, as well as the identification of best practices and standards for recruitment, training, and retention for PSC personnel.  Further, the RAC will partner with 9-1-1 and Geospatial Services (NGS) Bureau staff to implement the 9-1-1 Comprehensive Plan, including developing and completing tasks that support the plan’s strategic initiatives; and other tasks assigned by the Board.  The RAC will identify ways to improve communications among Board members, NGS staff, and stakeholder communities, as well as support the implementation of NG9-1-1 and increase awareness and support of outreach efforts regarding 9-1-1 and emergency response.
