NENA joins FCC Chairman Wheeler’s call for the evolution of our nation’s 9-1-1 system. Every day, we see technology’s possibilities realized in our smartphones, connected vehicles, smart homes, and so much more. Public expectation demands that consumers be able to communicate with response agencies the same way they communicate with each other – utilizing the latest IP-based devices that can push and pull information seamlessly. The time has come to make the financial investment necessary to make Next Generation 9-1-1 a reality. This technology will better serve those who reach out to 9-1-1 almost 250 million times per year, and give our field responders the tools necessary to keep the public safe during personal emergencies and large-scale disasters.
