This working group is creating materials to teach citizens what ways they have available to reach 9-1-1 and what may be the benefits and draw backs of their chosen method. All methods including TTY, VRS, Mobile Relay and Web Relay and Captioned telephones are addressed.

Materials such as Powerpoints, Fliers and other handouts, as well as videos are possible outcomes of this group. This group will also begin to address NG911 and how the Deaf and Hard of Hearing may be impacted.

Calls are Bi-weekly Thursday 12:30 pm Eastern - 1 hour

Skills needed include:
Volunteers should have a public education background and some experience working with members of the Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Speech Impaired communities. We are in need of volunteers with experience with those that are speech impaired.
5.1 Working Group Participation Expectations
It is the responsibility of the WG Chair to ensure all prospective WG Members are advised of the expectations for membership. WG members are expected to attend meetings/calls on a regular basis. Those who miss three (3) consecutive meetings without notifying the Working Group Chair(s) may be dropped from the roster and minutes distribution and forfeit their voting right in that Working Group. All committee, subcommittee, and working group members are required to participate in all polls to indicate their agreement or disagreement with the resolution of an Issue, except when there is more than one representative from an entity on a given committee, subcommittee or working group. In such cases, voting is limited to one vote per Participating Entity on any given subject. Members who do not fully participate and fulfill their membership responsibilities may be dropped from all distribution lists. Members who do not actively contribute and participate may be dropped at the DSC/Development Committee Chairs’ discretion.

NENA requires an explicit Intellectual Property Rights Policy to conduct its daily work. The objectives of this policy are to:

* Ensure that Members’ and participating Entities’ IPR are protected;
* Promote awareness of IPR issues among NENA Committees so as to permit informed decision-making about the tradeoffs associated with technical alternatives encountered in committee work; and
* Ensure that implementers producing products or services based on NENA standards are not unreasonably inhibited by IPR licensing requirements.
