Amends GS 143B-1406, adding to the authorized uses of distributions from the 911 Fund by a public safety answering point (PSAP). Now allows distributions to be used to pay the costs of contracting for communications services incurred by a city or county that operates a PSAP so long as three requirements are satisfied: (1) the city and/or county have a written agreement with a major military installation that operates a PSAP, (2) the written agreement requires the parties to mutually serve as a back-up PSAP or military secondary PSAP for each other, and (3) the communication services contract is necessary to ensure the city- or county-operated PSAP establishes and maintains the maximum amount of next generation 911 system compatibility with the PSAP operated by the major military installation.
Amends GS 143B-1400 to add Military Secondary PSAP to the defined terms applicable to Part 10, Emergency Telephone Service, of Article 15, concerning the Department of Information Technology.
