Determining appropriate staffing levels for a public safety answering point (PSAP) or emergency communications center can be difficult. Even more challenging than that can be the task of justifying your findings before a personnel or budgeting authority. Without a detailed, formalized system in place that considers call volume and other PSAP-specific data, it is almost impossible to calculate your staffing needs and know if your center is adequately staffed at all times. 

Designed to instruct attendees on the use of the NENA Communications Center Staffing Tool, this hands-on workshop then has you using the Tool during the workshop to determine your center’s staffing needs at a high-level. You will use a combination of facilitator-provided practice data and your PSAP’s actual data to determine the staffing needs of your center. Upon return to your agency, you will further modify the Tool with your center’s data to provide an accurate staffing assessment. 

Please note: Each student must bring a laptop computer to the workshop. The laptop must be have a USB port and be able to open Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
