Ohio Statewide Emergency Services Internet Protocol Network (ESINet) Steering Committee

An Emergency Services Internet Protocol Network (ESINet) is a network capable of connecting calls, texts and other forms of media from the public to 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs). The state will offer a statewide ESINet available for connection to local PSAPs.

The Ohio ESINet Steering Committee has been tasked with the following: 

  • Address the development of a statewide ESINet, including a review of the current funding model for this state's 9-1-1 systems;

  •  Examine the readiness of the state's current technology infrastructure to support Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1);
  •  Research legislative authority with regard to governance and funding;
  •  Make recommendations for consolidation of public-safety-answering-point operations in this state, to accommodate next-generation 9-1-1 technology and to facilitate a more efficient and effective emergency services system;
  •  Recommend policies, procedures, and statutory or regulatory authority to effectively govern a statewide emergency services internet protocol network;
  •  Coordinate with statewide initiatives and associations.
