911DataPath: A Strategic Plan for Sharing 911 Data Nationwide
Two Free Webinars - July 7, 2020 and July 14, 2020
June 9, 2020
Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and Emergency Communication Centers (ECCs) focus on helping those in need and saving lives. In order to do this effectively, 911 relies on data and information sharing, both locally and nationally. Because a standard 911 data system doesn't exist, the opportunity to share actionable data across the nation is limited.
The 911 DataPath is an initiative to produce a framework to enable the voluntary adoption of a uniform 911 data system. As a first step, stakeholders in the 911 community have come together to begin identifying important data points and a common way to reference them. This will help improve operations, support data needs to secure funding, and continue to standardize progress toward NG911.
The 911 DataPath initiative is underway and needs input on the types of administrative data for decision making that would be useful when shared with other 911 systems. In this webinar, initiative participants and the National 911 Program will address:
How access to timely, automated, reliable data sharing will help PSAPs and ECCs in their everyday work
How the 911 community can learn about and contribute to this effort to ensure it best meets the needs of all 911 systems
The types of data under consideration as the initial task of this data collection and sharing effort
