911 Education Foundation
The 911 Education Foundation — a subsidiary nonprofit of iCERT — raises awareness of, and educates policymakers, public safety stakeholders, and the general public on issues related to next generation 911 technologies, their deployment and operation. The Foundation provides a context to address questions about how next generation 911 standards and protocols, network elements and facilities, deployment and connectivity, and economics and funding, among other issues, will be defined apart from those found in the legacy telephone company environment.
The Foundation also serves as a resource to public safety stakeholders as they look to next generation 911 to improve emergency response in their communities with tools, such as Internet protocol (IP)-based call-processing equipment, enhanced Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and managed IP networks, to make more informed decisions, to better monitor situations in progress, and to manage their 911 environment.
