This Working Group is tasked with developing a NENA Standard related to military notifications by PSAPs. There are over 17,000 Department of Defense locations in the US—ranging from recruiting stations and offices to major military installations. Serving in and around those facilities are over 1,000,000 service members and their families. This standard will help ensure that vital information concerning those personnel and facilities are shared in an effective manner during times of crisis. The standard developed by this group will apply to all 6,000 US PSAPs and highlight the critical role that PSAPs play in ensuring Homeland Security, building on the lessons of Ft. Hood and Chattanooga. We are seeking volunteers with knowledge and experience in: PSAP Operations; CAD; EIDD; NG9-1-1 implementation; Call Protocols; and related areas. he US Department of Defense (including various commands, entities, and related offices); NASNA; All PSAPs; vendors of call-taking protocols; GIS providers; CAD Vendors; entities and organizations that provide 9-1-1 training. Please note, due to the unique nature of this group, participants must sign up no later than May 1, 2017.
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.
