Welcome to the Ohio 9-1-1 Program Office

The Ohio 9-1-1 Program Office coordinates and facilitates communication concerning 9-1-1 issues among state, federal, regional and local 9-1-1 and public safety communications officials. Specifically, the office coordinates all Emergency Services Internet Protocol Network (ESINet) Steering Committee activities to facilitate Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) state level efforts within the scope of wireless 9-1-1. The implementation of NG 9-1-1 will provide citizens with advanced communication capabilities when calling for emergency services, including police, fire and emergency medical services. Additionally, through use of the ESINet, NG 9-1-1 will become a seamless, coordinated and efficient system available to all local 9-1-1 centers throughout Ohio.

PSAP Managers: For any 9-1-1 service issues, please contact your service provider.  If you are having difficulty getting issues resolved, you may contact the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio by emailing OutageReport@puc.state.oh.us.
