Any issues accessing and 9-1-1-related documents should be directed to the Maryland 9-1-1 Board office at (410) 585-3108.
The Maryland 9-1-1 Board was formed in 1979 (Chapter 730, Acts of 1979). The board coordinates installation and enhancement of county 9-1-1 emergency telephone number services systems. The board issues guidelines and determines review procedures to approve or disapprove county plans for these systems; provides for audit of Trust Fund accounts; and sets criteria for reimbursing counties. Money can be disbursed from the original 9-1-1 Trust Fund and from ongoing funds.
The board's 17 members are appointed to four-year terms by the governor with senate advice and consent. The governor names the chair (Article 41, §18-103).
