Appreciating the complexity of the 911 system in the US is key to understanding how 911 and its related initiatives work.
The boundaries of the Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), shown as a layer on this map, demonstrate the complex nature of how 911 is structured in the US. Zoom in to see the PSAP boundaries, along with their related cities, counties, and states. This PSAP map has been simplified to easily render and manipulate. To see these boundaries in greater detail, click here. (This map has been developed by GeoPlatform and is open data.) PSAPs are continually changing. At the time that this map was developed, nationwide there were a total of 5,597 PSAPs.
As 911 initiatives in the field are growing, so too is this map. If you’re aware of an initiative that is missing, have questions, or would like to offer any corrections, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to information about the initiative.
