With the implementation of NG9‑1‑1, there will be many forms of additional data available to telecommunicators and emergency responders beyond the primary call data and the primary street address and/or geodetic location data. The NENA Standard for NG9‑1‑1 Additional Data defines how to populate the additional data structures to describe three entities commonly associated with an emergency call: The caller placing the emergency call, the location the emergency call is placed from, and the call itself (information about the means of communication). The combination of this primary data with additional data can assist in determining appropriate call routing and handling, as well as providing telecommunicators and field responders with information to better address the referenced incident. See the full document.
