Wireless Service Emergency Fund; uses.
The Wireless Service
Emergency Fund is created as a special fund in the State treasury. Subject to
appropriation, moneys in the Wireless Service Emergency Fund may only be used
for grants for emergency telephone system boards, qualified government
entities, or the Department of State Police. These grants may be used only
for the design, implementation, operation, maintenance, or upgrade of wireless
9-1-1 or E9-1-1 emergency services and public safety answering points, and for
no other purposes.
The moneys received by the Department of State Police from the Wireless
Service Emergency Fund, in any year, may be used for any costs relating to the
leasing, modification, or maintenance of any building or facility used to house
personnel or equipment associated with the operation of wireless 9-1-1 or
wireless E9-1-1 emergency services, to ensure service in those areas where
service is not otherwise provided.
Moneys from the Wireless Service Emergency Fund may not be used to pay for or
recover any costs associated with public safety agency equipment or personnel
dispatched in response to wireless 9-1-1 or wireless E9-1-1 emergency calls.
