On July 15th, 11:00am EDT, the NG911 Institute will be hosting a webinar discussing the importance of NG911 funding and technology in light of Covid-19. Our panel of experts fro NENA, APCO, and Emergency Communications Centers (ECCs) will cover a wide range of current topics including:
1) how ECCs have responded on the fly to Covid-19
2) ensuring call-takers are safe,
3) educating call-takers on questions to ask to ensure the safety of First Responders, and
4) adapting to a shifting landscape of emergency calls.
We will tie these important trends into two pieces of legislation that would; (1) allocate $12bil in funding to a nationwide NG911 system; and (2) reclassify 911 call-takers.
