In response to the FCC's adoption of a Notice of Inquiry seeking comment on ways to improve 9-1-1 call routing, NENA released the following statement:
 
Location-based routing is a fundamental element of NG9-1-1 that will decrease the time it takes to respond to emergencies. The FCC itself estimates that 10,000 lives could be saved each year if the emergency dispatching system (9-1-1) could get help one minute sooner to those calling for emergency assistance. NENA is glad to see the Commission taking action on this important issue and thanks them for their continued commitment to improving our nation’s 9-1-1 system.
