MAG Public Safety Network Programs

MAG's public safety network includes administration of the region's 9-1-1 system. MAG also administers a wireless communications network used by MAG member agencies and the regional business and education community to support transportation related activities. This ultimately reduces vehicle miles traveled, relieves traffic congestion, increases safety and reduces air pollution.
