This Committee is responsible for identifying issues related to health and wellness for 911 professionals. The Committee is tasked with not only identifying the issues but improving current standards as well as creating new standards, best practices and informational documents related to the identified issues. The focus of the Committee is to provide resources to 9-1-1 industry professionals that will promote and aid in the improvement of the physical and mental well-being of 9-1-1 professionals in both the public and private sectors to include 911 support personnel.

Through working groups established from this Committee, existing NENA standards relating to this topic will be reviewed for updates and new standards may be developed . The Committee will also review materials submitted to the NENA Wellness Portal to validate evidence-based documents and data and insure it is relative to the needs of public-safety wellness within a pre-defined process to be determined.
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.
