The National PSAP Registry is now being integrated and expanded into what is now called The North American 9-1-1 Resource Database. This central database will continue to fulfill the NPRs original purpose for supporting PSAP personnel to locate and contact other PSAPs during critical call transfer situations.
Additionally, a recent FCC order requiring VoIP 9-1-1 call delivery presented an opportunity to reinforce NENA as the trusted source for critical 9-1-1 information. The order generated the need for a single database inter-relating PSAP and Selective Router (`E9-1-1 Tandem) information. A new 9-1-1 System Reference Guide, composed of information included in the expanded North American 9-1-1 Resource Database, will facilitate service provider FCC compliance and each PSAPs strong need to maximize emergency 9-1-1 call delivery on dedicated 9-1-1 trunks and minimize emergency calls on 10 digit lines.
Currently the 9-1-1 Resource Database has two products available, the National PSAP Registry and the 9-1-1 System Reference Guide. Click on the appropriate name below for more information and to inquire about access.
