A 911 caller's location is considered the most critical piece of information required to properly route the call and provide emergency response in a timely fashion. Location information will continue to improve as technology and emergency communications improve, but what is available today? One such tool this webinar will discuss is a new resource, "Recommended Best Practices for Supplemental 911 Location Data", that describes; how supplemental 911 location data is provided to PSAPs, compares those processes to the way location information is provided by traditional 911 call processes, and recommends a set of best practices to guide the development, delivery and use of supplemental 911 location data. The document was developed by the Industry Council for Emergency Response Technologies (iCERT), the National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA) and the National 911 Program.
