Emergency Number Systems Board

Emergency Number Systems Board

The Emergency Number Systems Board was formed in 1979 (Chapter 730, Acts of 1979). The board coordinates installation and enhancement of county 9-1-1 emergency telephone number services systems. The board issues guidelines and determines review procedures to approve or disapprove county plans for these systems; provides for audit of Trust Fund accounts; and sets criteria for reimbursing counties. Money can be disbursed from the original 9-1-1 Trust Fund and from ongoing funds.

The board's 17 members are appointed to four-year terms by the governor with senate advice and consent. The governor names the chair (Article 41, ยง18-103).
