North Louisiana 9-1-1 Directors meet in Natchitoches

911 meeting 06-2017

9-1-1 Directors from across North Louisiana converged on Natchitoches June 23 for their spring meeting.  The region includes some 27 parishes bordering the Arkansas state line on the north down to Sabine Parish on the Texas border and Concordia Parish on the Mississippi  border.  The group discussed a variety of critical  9-1-1 and public safety communications issues including legislative updates, the FirstNET nationwide public safety network, GIS 9-1-1 mapping issues and the recent submission of the Statewide 9-1-1 Report, and progress on the NATCOM project.  INdigital, which is an industry leader in the development of next-generation 9-1-1 deployment and operation and providing service and support to 9-1-1 systems across the United States also provided information on their systems and services.

Willis Carter, 9-1-1 Director for Natchitoches Parish, said that the severe weather that hit the area on last Friday was responsible for the lower than usual turnout, but he expressed appreciation to Mayor Lee Posey, and 9-1-1 Commission Chairman Micky Dove for offering a warm welcome to the group.  The next quarterly meeting will be in Madison Parish, the date, and time to be determined.
