9-1-1 Goes to Washington brings together hundreds of 9-1-1 professionals from around the country with policy leaders in our nation's capital to explore and discuss today's most pressing 9-1-1 and emergency communications issues. 9-1-1 Goes to Washington is the only event where you can learn about the policy challenges facing public safety and take immediate action to address them through dialog with your elected and appointed officials.

Our three-day program offers a significant opportunity for 9-1-1 professionals to shape the nation’s emergency communications policy agenda. In order to address the needs of today’s 9-1-1 systems while laying the regulatory and legislative groundwork for Next Generation systems. To ensure the availability and reliability of 9-1-1 systems, public safety professionals must understand today’s 9-1-1 policy landscape and take an active role in educating policymakers to shape the laws and rules of tomorrow. At 9-1-1 Goes to Washington, you will do both. Join us in Washington for a dynamic, interactive three-day program where you will receive:

  • The inside information you need to help shape the 9-1-1 and emergency communications agendas for the Administration and Congress;
  • Critical knowledge of current, proposed, and needed federal and state 9-1-1, homeland security, and emergency communications legislation, regulation, and policy initiatives; and
  • An opportunity to speak directly with members of Congress, administration officials, and key staff to make your voice heard on behalf of the entire 9-1-1 community.
